Chaos in the Wild

Chaos is all around us, amiright? These reported essays dive deep into thorny topics I’m trying to unpack. My writing tends to be about ADHD, queerness, social justice, parenting, spirituality, and in-between spaces in society. So… expect a lot of that. These essays take a lot of doing to get written well, so they are also available to paid subscribers.

Welcome to the Chaos Palace is about coloring outside society's boring ol' lines. More specifically, it's about ADHD, parenting, queerness, and Judaism.


I'm a queer journalist, essayist, and part time Cantor living in Brooklyn with my wife and kids. I write about the weirdness in the world, the people who are doing things differently, and all the in-between spaces that bring joy to the madness.
