A few years ago, I quit my day job in advertising to write picture books for children instead. The newest one is called High Five. It’s a neon, rhyming, zoological, adventure that’s designed to inspire physical creativity and hands-on interaction. It was a #1 Indie and NYT bestseller (perhaps due to my appearances on NPR and GMA).

I've had ten books published so far (four have been NYT bestsellers). The most popular one is called Dragons Love Tacos. It was illustrated by my handsome and talented friend, Daniel Salmieri. Heck, I even made a separate kid-friendly site with no mild profanity in the URL, specifically for fans of children's literature.

Before I started writing full-time, I worked on "branded content" during the day and did improv "comedy" on the side. Now, in between writing projects, I curate and invent puzzles for a design-driven gaming company called Art of Play. I love creating brain teasers and frequently work behind-the-scenes with world famous magicians.

If you'd like to hear about my latest projects, feel free to follow me on twitter. If you have any questions, send me an email. And finally, if you've read this far down the page, you may be interested in watching me and some friends win a Japanese laughing competition.
