Literary and nonprofit outreach at Tumblr. Co-creator of Six-Word Memoirs and co-editor of the New York Times Bestseller Not Quite What I Was Planning and three other books.

I’ve written for some books, magazines, newspapers, and websites, and spoken at the NYPL, 92nd Street Y, Google, SXSW, and a lot of bookstores. A few times they’ve let me be on NPR. If anything cool like that happens again, or I have deep thoughts about showtunes or tomatoes, my Tumblr will probably tell you.
