Sherwood became a casino dealer at a new Pennsylvania casino in 2010. He dealt cards for five years before becoming table games supervisor. In 2012, Sherwood created the Twitter account @AnnoyedPitBoss, formerly the Annoyed Casino Dealer, to share his daily happenings to the world. After the account organically took off, Sherwood began jotting down notes of stories and characters that he encountered every day at his job. The notes and stories would lead to his book “Dealt – Stories from My Life on the Felt.” Sherwood has worked in two casinos since his casino career began and currently lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and their two daughters.

Released in May 2022, “Dealt – Stories from My Life on the Felt” is a collection of 32 short stories from Sherwood’s experiences. He takes the reader behind the table with the true, shocking, and hilarious accounts from his perspective while dealing blackjack, roulette, mini-baccarat and three-card poker. Dealt is a wild roller coaster ride, filled with the highs and lows of gambling mixed in with humor, high-stakes action and jaw-dropping, real-life moments that will leave readers shaking their heads.
