I’m the award-winning and bestselling author of four books, which have been translated into 20 languages. My work has been featured in The Washington Post, Cosmo, Good Morning America, CNN, National Geographic, CBS, The Los Angeles Review of Books, New York Daily News, Oprah Daily, and more.
I’m most widely-known for my memoir, This is How I Save My Life (Simon and Schuster, 2018) and my popular How To Heal Yourself book series. But I’m also an enthusiastic traveler who writes about how exploring our own neighborhoods and destinations around the world help us discover who we really are. My next book is a co-authored LGBTQIA+ travel guide, forthcoming with National Geographic. And because I don’t know when to stop, I just finished my debut Young Adult novel.
But my greatest work is connecting with — and helping — people. After surviving almost a decade with debilitating illness (chronic Lyme disease, autoimmune issues, and more), I’m grateful for my complete recovery—and the ability to use my experience to help others. Through my journey, I’ve found my own version of being healed—living in a healthy body while also sometimes losing complete Zen-like perspective, binging on gluten, and temporarily forgetting all the important life lessons I’ve learned. Except for this: being human is so much better than trying to be perfect.
I work with a limited number of clients per month through private healing sessions using my signature energy therapy techniques. And in addition to my own writing, I work with other writers to help them release inner blocks so they can worry less, write more, and get their work into the world.
I live with my beautiful wife and our bad cat in New York City, where we spend most of our time planning our next meals, next adventures, or watching the next episode of The Golden Girls for the thousandth time.
