I’m a New York City author and journalist who covers media, culture, the arts, technology, and other cool things.
I’m a news editor for Fast Company. Before that, I was deputy media and culture editor of International Business Times and a theater critic for Newsweek. I was also managing editor of Show Business magazine for six years. My writing has appeared in Wired, Vice News, Condé Nast Traveler, The Independent, 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 Simon & Schuster, 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 and exotic wildlife (not really). I began my career writing for black-box theaters in the 1990s and later became an arts and culture writer for Seattle magazine. Elsewhere, I tackled similar topics for national magazines like MovieMaker, Dramatics, and Emmy. Later, I moved to New York City, also known as the scaffolding capital of the world.
In other news, I’m accepting VC for my app that turns your phone into a time machine.
