Adrian Todd Zuniga is the host and creator of Literary Death Match (now in 72 cities worldwide); the Foreword Prize Award-nominated novelist of Collision Theory (2018); the WGA Award nominated screenwriter of EA Sports’s Longshot (which features Mahershala Ali), and writer-director of the multi-award-winning short film Hold Me, Don’t Touch Me. Oscar-nominee/novelist Tom Perrotta called his writing “funny and full of dark surprises”, LA Magazine called him a “bug-eyed, whippet-thin, literary P.T. Barnum” and Daisy Waugh (Evelyn Waugh’s granddaughter) said he was “sexy, if you like the louche, epicene lizard look.” Ouch? His passport says USA, but his address is AUS.
