Television writer and producer, author and journalist, cook and general all-around lazybones.

Early career milestones include being writer and co-executive producer of television comedy Cheers.

Later career milestones include a string of cancelled television shows, two books, a weekly commentary on public radio, a column for the English-language Abu Dhabi-based newspaper, The National and occasional writing for Time and (what was then) Newsweek. A contributing editor to National Review magazine.

My weekly radio commentary, “Martini Shot,” is broadcast on the Los Angeles public radio station KCRW, and is distributed nationally. It’s also podcast in iTunes.

His most recent book is Bigly: Donald Trump in Verse, published in October 2017 by Regnery.
