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 1.5-hour, multimedia event includes a humorous travel slide show, readings from my novel God Bless Cambodia and performances from my show The Chronic Single's Handbook.
