Professional Experience

I regularly contribute men's style and grooming pieces to The Manual, AskMen, and Gear Patrol, and designer profiles to Forum Magazine. I write for menswear trade publication MR Magazine and MR-mag.com (I was the Fashion Director there for eight years, where I developed my editorial, styling and photo shoot production skills). I'm a fashion insider who can analyze style trends and provide expert reporting, and am adept at finding the voice of outlets and brands.
