I am a writer living in South Dakota. I have written my whole life, but only seriously these last few years. Giving up conventional notions of career and success, I changed my life and plunged full-time into the world of the starving artist. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. I have had several stories, articles, and poems published, and am currently writing a weekly column for Cagle Cartoons & Commentary. Be forewarned, it is very liberal and very sarcastic.
I am also the author of the infamous “Mechanically Separated Chicken” article, which made the rounds awhile back and was widely misunderstood. I’m also author of “Shitty Tattoo,” a short work of comedy that also made the rounds and which nobody got but me.
I consider myself a satirist and am interested in the dark side of everything. I am not a prescriptivist about anything, least of all writing. My work has been compared to Elmore Leonard, Augusten Burroughs, and David Sedaris, but I don’t know what that means since I have never read any of them. It has also been called “uniquely fucked up” and I know exactly what that means. You will, too.
