Until recently I was trying to make it seem like I had a really good assistant updating this site, but okay, it’s just me, trying to keep my published essays and interviews and other professional shenanigans in one spot, because I often meet someone and think, “I should send you the link to that thing I wrote that is about exactly what we’re talking about,” so here it is, for people I’ve met, and also people I haven’t.

I’ve been lucky enough to write and produce TV shows including Modern Family, Sex and the City, and Everybody Loves Raymond.   I’m currently working on an upcoming Showtime hour called I’m Dying Up Here about standup comics in L.A. in the 70s (starring Melissa Leo and executive produced by Dave Flebotte, Michael Aguilar, and Jim Carrey).

I also wrote episodes of the new HBO comedy Divorce (which stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church) and the new FX comedy Better Things (created by and starring Pamela Adlon and produced with Louis C.K.).

I’ve written two books: “The Between Boyfriends Book” (a NYT  bestseller), and a comic memoir about marriage called “The Longest Date: Life as a Wife.”
