Single Man Empty Fridge was inspired by my own divorce as a father with two young children. I was mindlessly enjoying a burger at a cafe with a suburban pal when he began prodding me on life on the other side, post divorce. I readily relayed every bachelor detail -- from good to desperate, only to learn two days later that he had just launched into the gray territory of marital separation himself. This gave birth to my story. So the catalyst was rather genuine and organic. I'm drawn to dark comedy, so that explains the genre.

Gridlock, the novel and screenplay, germinated from my work in New York’s largest hospital, Beth Israel Medical Center, where I saw the reluctant convergence of computers and medicine.

If I could only take three ethnic foods on a deserted island, it would be Japanese, Mexican and Italian. But if I were trapped with a hot-blooded Latina, I'd go with whatever she chooses.
"If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster."
