A graduate of Princeton, Exeter, and Virginia Law School, a bestselling author, TV producer, award-winning comedian, and critically-acclaimed writer, Jeff brings your innovative ideas to your target audience in effective, engaging, and memorable ways. 

He uses his skills and experience – as a writer, journalist, investigative attorney, and comedian – to bring out the very best in you, your clients, and your message. 


  • Books - writing, ghostwriting, proposal creation, brainstorming on any topic, any time
  • Speeches - from punch-up to full script, for execs, media personalities, academics, politicians, and thought-leaders of every stripe
  • Op-eds & think pieces - to persuade and establish issue credibility
  • Scripts - for PR firms, commercials, industrials, presentations, and fun
  • Comedy - from stand-up to sketch, roast jokes, viral videos, live shows, radio or just a few handy lines to have in a debate or media appearance
  • Blogs and social media - for anything and everything else

Wait, he’s a former lawyer and a very accomplished writer, but... comedy? 

In the marketplace of ideas, comedy is an immediate, short-form, proactive and reactive tool for engagement that satisfies the need for smart, unique content and compelling stories. 

Jeff is collaborating on a scientific study about the engagement effect of well-crafted humor. Details soon.

Humor isn’t appropriate for every project, but there is no better proving ground for creating concise, gripping, and memorable material than stand-up. 

Jeff's work has appeared on TV, radio, online and print pages around the world and has been praised by the likes of Publisher's Weekly, The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, CNBC, Rachel Maddow, San Francisco Chronicle, Dallas Morning News and even Penthouse Magazine.

"It's the rare kind of book that makes you feel a lot smarter, while simultaneously giving you actionable tips for improving your daily life." - Business Insider

"... Plus, this book is surprisingly entertaining—I laughed out loud several times during the introduction alone. If you’re looking for an illuminating, enjoyable read about how people think about money, and how to get the most out of what you spend, I can’t recommend this book highly enough." - Book Riot
