He spent seven years in Los Angles writing, and optioned two screenplays, but never made an outright sale. In 2002 he opened his first book store, Booktraders, in Portland, Maine, but closed and went home to Philadelphia, and the Book Trader in 2006, where he stayed until 2009. During his second stint at the Book Trader he negoitated the contract to have the film "The Answer Man" shot at the store. He left there to join a non-profit bookstore, the Friends of the Free Library of Philadelphia's Book Corner. In 2012 he left Book Corner, and in April of 2013 opened Neigbborhood Books, which has been a success growing in reputation and economically every year.
