WRITING

Though I work across media, my expertise is based in the art of writing. My work has been featured in magazines, collections, and books (which I’ve both authored and edited). I write across genres and across mediums, and I’ve even received awards for some of my work.

THE TROJAN HORSES – 2010

original sitcom series

High school is a tough time; there are hormones, hair in confusing places, and almost everyone wishes they were someone else.

Jacob’s had it as bad as anyone. Socially awkward and introverted, he’s always lived in the shadow of his identical twin brother, Red. If it were possible for an identical twin to be taller, Red would be – able to grow a moustache that puts most any other 17-year-old boy to shame and already being scouted as the star kicker of the Bow High Trojans, Red’s had the whole world fall into his lap. Nothing could stop his rising star, save the Ford Taurus that ploughed into him as Jacob stared dumbfounded.

Almost everyone in high school wishes they were someone else. Jacob Jaffe saw that opportunity when he stole his twin brother’s identity.

CAMPUS CONFIDENTIAL – 2014

non-fiction collection

A non-fiction collection on the topic of modern love.

Via the editor, David Leach:

“Like many readers of the New York Times, my favourite column in the fat Sunday edition is the Style section’s “Modern Love” essay. Some week’s offerings are better than others, but I’m always fascinated to read the different authors’ unique mix of storytelling and reflection on the fraught subject of relationships in the 21st century. The Times also runs a contest for college students to submit an essay, and then publishes the top stories. After reading the winners, I am often left with the thought: “Hmph, my students could do better than that!” The contest, alas, is open only to Americans.”
