If that’s what you’re into

Humor & Satire

If you’re reading this, you probably already know that I like making people laugh. Fortunately, I’ve found a few publications that dig my style.

Points in Case

PiC has been a good fit for my sense of humor. They publish weirder, riskier pieces that don’t fit the mold established by behemoths like McSweeney’s and The New Yorker who don’t appreciate my subtle genius.

Robot Butt

I wrote this piece for their “dystopian humor” theme week. I love the illustration they used for it!


Writing hard! So many words! That why 251 short. Short good.

Glossy News

This was my very first published piece, so it still holds a special place in my heart. It’s political satire, written during the 2019 Presidential primaries.

Funny Times

I’ve published several pieces in Funny Times, an old-school monthly print magazine. Some are available online elsewhere (including Medium), while a few are FT exclusives.

  • “Let’s Do The Time Warp Again” (May 2021)
  • “My Right to Wear a Beard of Bees Shall Not Be Infringed” (December 2020)
  • “The Hobo Vote” (October 2020)
  • “Workers of the World, Unite! (To Form Voltron)” (June 2020)
  • Heroic Bumblebee Saves Hive, Kills Child” (April 2020)
  • To Pee or Not To Pee” (November 2019)
  • “Pete Buttigieg Learns Korean to Attend BTS Concert” (September 2019)

Oh Reader

Another print-only magazine. You can find Oh Reader in your local Barnes & Noble or subscribe on their website.

I read all kinds of fiction, so I write all kinds of fiction, too. I haven’t published much yet, but expect this section to grow!

Rune Bear

I’m a two-time winner of their quarterly microfiction contest!

Abyss & Apex

A&A is a Hugo Award-nominated magazine of speculative fiction and poetry.

Light Poetry Magazine

Well, of course I write humorous poetry about current events! What else would you expect?

While it’s not my main focus, I do occasionally write about myself and my life.
