“Namor” published by 3 Rooms Press in “Have A NYC 3″




What up?

“What up?!” In some parts of our city, this one of the most common ways to say hi, or “How you doin’”. “How you doin’” is just another way to say “What’s poppin’?” , a variation on “What’s good?” which is another version of….the dance goes on. And that’s just a greeting.

Here in the great experiment called New York City, the diversity of the human experience can come alive before our eyes in a five minute walk, or within a 190 page book!


My short story, Namor, has been published in HAVE A NYC DAY 3, an annual collection of short stories about the greatest city mankind has ever imagined (suck it, Copenhagen). The collection is put out by  3 Rooms Press: www.threeroomspress.com .

Below are some of the places it can be purchased. I will also be reading a portion of the story at the book release event, this Friday, June 6th. This is a free event at the Cornelia Street Café starting at 6. More details on the flyer attached.

Please email me if you plan on attending.

 Thanks much.

“Minutos” Published by Bohemian Press

Minutos de celular

Greetings peoples,

Another piece from my play Locombia has been published in Bohemian Press’s Dead Flowers Poetry Rag!

It’s called Minutos, and it’s about the cell phone minutes racket in Bogota, Colombia. These citizens of Bogota pictured here are partaking in that very racket. You can find it right here:


The magazine is available to print or upload as a PDF (I’m on page 13).  All gratitude to guest editor Victoria Smith.

Be well!

This is a story told by 5 extraordinary actors, and executed by a kick ass production team. It’s been 5 years since I produced my own work, and a lot of my life has gone into it these last couple of months, so I hope to see a lot of you there. I promise it to be an interesting ride.
