I have engaged in prose combat on many levels. I'm most famous for my College Application Essay, which was originally published in Harper's, and continues to make it's way all over the internet. I wrote for Rolling Stone, Dirt, and Wired Magazine, and also television shows for Comedy Central and MTV. My first novel, "Teeth", was published in the late 90's. Gore Vidal called it "A Dental Masterpiece." About three people read it. (one of them was me.) I wrote a Daft Punk video with Spike Jonze. I also created Von Von Von. Now I do branding/marketing writing at Nemo Design, which is a blast. One of my most profound moments with the written word came from a magnet on display in a Brooklyn ninety-nine cent store. It said: "Words are the fog we see the world through."
