In a scam or be scammed world, the best that can be hoped for is to land on top a little more than hitting rock bottom.

These are the true life stories of a lovable rogue, a wiseass slacker, blind to consequence and a magnet for the bizarre. His particular penchant for non-confrontation is completely offset by his flair for gerry-rigging the loose ends into a cluster bomb while trying to please everyone. How he contrives to get out of these situations ignites the surreal fireworks. The story starts with his release from a 10 day prison stay in Strasbourg France- on a charge of ‘Extreme Stupidity’. After being cut off from the cushy parental gravy train, it's a fallen dominos succession of losing everything in his once sybaritically fun life: His business, fair weather girlfriend, his allowance… In a fit of self-destructive lunacy, he exiles himself to New York in search of redemption, and a non-stop party… Impecunious and morally lax, he thrusts himself head first/brain last into the karmic pinball bumpers of the fashion world and the NYC dating scene, bouncing him around comically awful situations. He’s all over the map: New York, Rome, Portillo Chile and the minefields of the Hamptons. Woven into the tapestry are the outrageous-but-true characters who continually poke sticks into his spokes...
