I’ve done stuff. Comedy writing, journalistic adventuring, illustrating, music & video-making, and most notably: pranking the funk out of Wisconsin Governor, and 2016 Republican presidential derpful, Scott Walker. Remember that shit? I posed as a multi-billionaire Koch brother, got Scotty on the horn with ease, and let the corrupt megalomaniac ramble for twenty damning minutes. That was funny.
I ran for Congress, too, for some fucking reason. That was also kinda funny—especially when I bought my incompetent opponents’ eponymous dot-orgs to satirize their dot-coms. I also “[e]xplore[d] the ethical frontiers of political parody” by volunteering for my Republican opponent’s campaign.
Aside from being arrested for filming a cop at a National Organization for Marriage hate-rally, and subsequently doing a brief prison stint on a trumped-up, dildo-related public obscenity charge, I haven’t been up to much.
Every once in a while, I go back and read some of the crazy things I’ve done, like the time I crashed the grand opening of Ken Ham’s Creation “Museum,” that time I canoed to Canada and back to test border security, or that time I received hundreds of death threats—this is depressing.
Professional troublemaking is a pretty thankless game. I should get back into business, though, and I guess that’s why I have this website.
My work has appeared at Salon, the Daily Beast, Politico Magazine, AlterNet, the Progressive, the Buffalo Beast, Crooks & Liars, Free Inquiry, and various unread blogs like this one.
