Tales of a Reluctant World Traveler

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 one-hour, multimedia event includes a humorous travel slide show, readings from my novel "God Bless Cambodia," (The Permanent Press/March 2017) and performances from my acclaimed show "The Chronic Single's Handbook."

Suggested audiences:  general public, comedy lovers, people interested in world travel, as well as readers, writers, and authors


For organizations on tighter budgets, please contact me and we will come up with an arrangement that works for both of us.

Also, please note: Price is for each of the solo show listed on this page.

For my events with the New England Indie Authors Collective (NEIAC.ORG), pricing scale is different.
