Thanks for visiting!
My name is Cole and I'm a writer, performer and television news producer. Exciting things happen and I tell stories about them. I live in Los Angeles, produce for ABC News, and perform storytelling all over the city including The Moth, where I am a proud two-time GrandSlam champion.
As a news producer, I often deal with real life natural disasters - like tornados or Charlie Sheen. As a writer and performer, I deal with my own natural disasters - like my real life amnesia or the year I spent working on a documentary about the porn industry.
