Sunday nights bring, not only my favorite television shows — unencumbered by America’s favorite lite beer and nacho fueled homoerotic team wrestling event — but also a feeling of relief that the weekend is finally over and my family can get back to its routine

Pre-order my first book, "This is Ridiculous. This is Amazing" on Amazon 

Better, wait until it comes out on May 13th and buy it at your local indie book store. 

I’m a contributing writer to Parents Magazine, GQ, Psychology Today, The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, The Hairpin and some others. Look for two books from me in 2014 and another in 2015. If you could help me write them, that would be cool too.

I’ve appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham”, “Nick Mom’s Night Out”, The Howard Stern Show, and most recently, TLC’s “Best Celebrity Weddings of 2012.”

I live in Minneapolis with my wife and two sons and enjoy making them laugh more than anyone else.
