I am the author of several cookbooks in the Complete Idiot’s Guide series, including 20-Minute Meals, 5-Minute Appetizers, 30-Minute Meals, Quick & Easy Low Carb Meals, and my favorite, Cooking for Guys. That title serves up cooking inspiration and humor for kitchen-shy guys, has been mentioned in the New York Times and the Boston Globe, and can be found on shelves from Boston to Sydney. Here's my Bookstore.
I provide recipes and content for the Powisset Farm CSA (part of The Trustees of Reservations), and other organizations devoted to supporting local food. On the decidedly more indulgent side, I created over a hundred Restaurant Recipes for the Phantom Gourmet television show. The Phantom crew filmed these epic dishes in my kitchen west of Boston.
I have been a lifeguard, a Christmas tree salesman, a vacuum cleaner salesman, a healthcare regulatory customer service rep, and a mall Santa. I build dry stone walls for fun.

I love photography almost as much as I love to write. Much of my work features my images.
