In this (hopefully) humorous talk, I share my experiences creating art projects in New York City, starting each one before I had figured out how to finish it. I hope it gives others a reason to reconsider a sidelined idea, even if they don't have all the details figured out.
Seven years after launching the “Tourist Lanes” project, it appeared in two different books. Weird. First, in “Handbook for an Urban Revolution” and then in Jeremiah Moss’ “Vanishing New York",” which you can grab here.
I wanted to give a TedX Talk about the difference between TedX Talks and Ted Talks, but they said “no.” Instead, I’ll be speaking about the importance of moving forward with an idea even in the absence of knowing how to finish it. If you’re in SoCal, swing by. Get tix here.
Last year, two comedian friends and I were invited to perform at NYC's French Comedy Festival. Little did we know, a french documentary crew would be on hand. They asked for our perspectives as new comics and we made it into the film! Here's a clip.
I sat down with Paddy Harrington in Toronto for the First Things First podcast
I've been performing standup for about 15 months now, so very psyched to have made it onto the festival, let alone place 3rd amongst so many great comics.
As a former commissioner of NYC's Department of Transportation, Janette Sadik-Khan made more room for pedestrians, bikers, buses, and green spaces. In her new book, Street Fight (Handbook for an Urban Revolution), she makes mention of my "Tourist Lane" project. When I chatted with her on Twitter she told me the Tourist Lane story is one of her favorites to tell. Awwww shucks. Check out Janette's book here.
