Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Note: this is now available as a virtual/Zoom event

Sixteen weeks, four continents, three bungee jumps, and I couldn't come home soon enough. This is the story of how a Boston homebody turned a solo trip around the globe into a comedy novel and an acclaimed one-man show.

The 1.5-hour, multimedia event includes a humorous travel slide show, readings from my novel God Bless Cambodia and performances from my show The Chronic Single's Handbook.

The talk includes photos and videos of my trip around the world and my experiences with literary agents and publishers, plus live readings and performances of material from my comedy novel "God Bless Cambodia." The novel was published by The Permanent Press, a publisher of literary fiction.

There will also be time for Q&A on travel, writing, and performing.

I am a Boston-based travel lecturer, novelist, and comedian. In 2007, I took a four-month, solo trip around the world and learned to say in three languages: "Speak English?" "Got Pepto-Bismol?" and "Where is the evacuation helicopter?"

My comedy novel ("God Bless Cambodia,") and a pair of one-man shows ("The Chronic Single's Handbook" and "Tales of a Reluctant World Traveler") were inspired by the trip. I perform the shows around the U.S., Canada, and for Airbnb in Boston.
