About Me

Writer, palindromist, standup comic.
I edit the blog "Taoish: a place for irreverent spiriituality," at http://www.taoish.org which covers everything from failrly deep discussions of Daoist philosophy to modern Daoist heroes (whether they know it or not) such as Nate Silver, Gus Van Sant, Jack White and Chip Kelly.

You can find three of my "American Koans" on the Exterminating Angel website. These are from a book called "Philosophy Without All Those Words" that I am working on.

My article "Comedians as Daoist Missionaries" was featured on the excellent blog Warp, Weft and Way. It also appeared in issue #4 of MeFiMag, the print/pdf magazine that grew out of Metafilter.
