Writing

I've taken to Medium like my 5th-grade self took to Duncan Hines frosting. Almost everything I write is published there first. However, the way Medium is set up, you have to wade through a lot of mediocre writing to get to the good stuff. For your convenience, I compiled my ten most popular Medium stories here, based on number of views (in parentheses):

  1. Better Dating Through PowerPoint (36k) - Medium Top 20 Story of the Day, Medium Staff Favorite
  2. An Illustrated Guide to Using the Sh*t Out of Your Notebook (13.9k) - Medium Top 20 Story of the Day
  3. Conversationbomb Like a Pro (8.3k) - Medium Editors' Pick, and holy shit, right next to Anthony Bourdain!
  4. I'm 31 and moving to an adult dorm. Here's why. (7.6k)
  5. The Case for Buying Domain Names Compulsively (3.3k) - Featured Medium Tech story
  6. A Breakup Text to Redeem Humanity (2.5k) - Also published in Swipe Magazine (UK)
  7. Ten Atrocities I've Committed Against Former Roommates (2k) - Medium Editors' Pick, cross-posted in the Huffington Post
  8. The Secret to Finding Love: Boredom (1.8k)
  9. 32 Dating Goals for my 32nd Birthday (1.7k) - Medium Editor's Pick
  10. Menu: A Romantic Dinner for One (1.6k)

I've also published twice in the Washington Post:

  1. Why I traded my pots and pans for a better social life (July 12, 2016)
  2. The opposite of catfishing: When bad online profiles lead to good dates (June 2, 2015)
