Professional Experience

I'm a Senior Editor turned Freelancer with about seven years of experience in the national magazine arena. As a product of the "lad mag" halcyon days, I'm your go-to writer for entertainment, gear, dining and spirits. In my first three years as Associate Editor at Stuff Magazine I informed what recent college grads should be consuming to lead more fulfilling lives, speaking directly to that oh-so coveted 18-34 demographic. I've been handed everything from interviews with celebs, to sports legends, to lingerie models. As a former Senior editor at Penthouse, I know what an assigning editor expects from freelance copy. With long-standing PR relationships in the entertainment, consumer electronic, and beverage worlds, I can find you the story and deliver it--no matter if it's 200 or 2000 words, an overnight deadline, or a month of grinding out research.
