I’m a New York City author and journalist who covers media, culture, the arts, technology, and other cool things.
Most recently, I was deputy media and culture editor of International Business Times, the flagship title of IBT Media in the Financial District. Before that, I was managing editor of Show Business magazine for six years. My work has also appeared in Newsweek, The Independent, Fast Company, Salon, Huffington Post, and elsewhere.
My book Tortured Artists—a loving exploration of the relationship between creativity and pain—was published in 2012 by Adams Media, an imprint of F+W Media, and rereleased in 2015 by Hurbert Burda Media. Every time you buy a copy, an angel gets a shot of Cuervo.
Some personal junk: I was born in beautiful Trenton, New Jersey, a town known for its lush forests, sweeping vistas, and exotic wildlife (not really). I began my career writing for black-box theaters in Orlando during the 1990s and later in Seattle, where I was an arts and culture writer for Seattle magazine. Elsewhere, I tackled similar topics for national magazines like MovieMaker, Dramatics, and Emmy.
About eleven years ago, I came to New York City (also known as the scaffolding capital of the world) and haven’t looked back. You can’t. You just can’t. In other news, I’m accepting VC funding for my app that turns your iPhone into a time machine.
