I write essays, short stories, screenplays, radio plays, and comedy. The writing is usually about how I am doing things right and everyone else is doing them wrong, or else about elevators or serotonin. Sometimes they're published in places like CollegeHumor & ClickHole.
Sometimes I like to read stories & essays aloud, so here are some of those, if that's what you're into.
