Another column for +The New York Times international weekly edition. http://nyt.audiencemedia.com/elpais_en/content/view/full/47892
These days much is said about the value of being your true self -- being authentic. But some people think that's not such a good idea.

Something I wrote for +The New York Times international weekly edition: "From the Lap of Luxury to the Airs of Minimalism" http://nyt.audiencemedia.com/elpais_en/content/view/full/47295 
Not all wealthy people are looking to stay on the world's most luxurious hotels and buy yachts. One is happy with Airbnb and a bag with 15 items.

Humanity, Can We All Please Stop Abusing the Word ‘Bespoke’?
Maybe one day everyone will be able to afford a bespoke burger and the word won't arouse such ire as with today's bespoke-wielding scalawags. After all, there might have been a time when someone wh...

Here's my latest column for The New York Times international weekly edition: It’s No Time for Contemplation http://nytweekly.com/columns/lensarchives/07-01-16/

I am a writer in New York City. I have lived all over the country, and was lucky enough to live in Hawaii twice. I also lived in Texas twice. And North Carolina twice.

I like it here.
