Hey, people! I was sifting through unpublished blog posts (turns out, there are dozens) and came across one that, unfortunately, always seems to be in season. It was a tad engrossing to look back on this post, which I believe is close to 18 or 19 months old and compare it to my current situation, which thankfully is much different, much healthier. Nevertheless, breakups suck ass. Oddly enough, I wrote a blog that started similarly to […]

Lost Files: The Autopsy of a Breakup


You deserve to fail. I’m sure your mother disagrees. And while I’m sure she’s a fine woman, your mother is wrong. Because seriously, IF you hit the snooze bar three times, skipped the gym again, stopped at Dunkin Donuts for breakfast, cranked out eight half-assed hours at work, then went home and caught up on Netflix because you were “too tired” to do anything else, then I mean it – you deserve to fail. That said, I include myself in […]

You Deserve to Fail


Daniel and I were standing by the sliding glass doors at the back of the living room of the house, if you could call it that. We’d somehow escaped an open floor plan filled with people, most of whom were congregated in the kitchen sharing bottles of craft beer and a newly opened package of Lindt chocolate truffles. “This place is awesome,” I said, looking over to the kitchen and scanning right to gaze up […]

245 days. That’s how long it’s been since I got fired from my job and decided to go off on my own to start DB + Partners. If no one has ever pushed you to professionally go fuck yourself, awesome. Because the event has the potential to destroy you on a number of levels – and I’d venture to say financially is the least of them. For so many people, their career is their public […]

The 10 Phases of Dating, my debut book, goes on sale October 1! In the past couple of years, I’ve fallen out of habit with writing on my blog, but I’m planning to change that from now through the launch of the book. This is my second blog in a week, in what I’m calling ‘the lost chapters’ from the book. This excerpt is called ‘The Month of Slutober.’

White people will tell you it exists, but that it’s true of other white people. Black people will tell you they’re victims of it. And Hispanic or Latino people – you know, ‘Mexicans’ to the uninformed – are being unilaterally threatened with deportation because of it. (And Syrians, and judges in Indiana, and…) It is racism, or what the dictionary defines as the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that […]
