I have interviewed Knicks and eaten brains in the name of a good story. I also eat deadlines for breakfast. As a freelance writer, I specialize in offbeat articles about food/travel/sports/culture. I have an MFA in Creative Writing (Fiction), and I am based in my hometown of Brooklyn, NY.

Other Work History
I was the Assistant Editor for HOOP, the official magazine of the NBA, before going to graduate school and teaching English. I have ghostwritten successful book proposals, proofread encyclopedias, maintained multiple sports/culture blogs, pulled weeds as a farmhand, and I currently tend bar part time.
I'm highly literate with a Mac, and I blog with the best using both Tumblr and Wordpress. Also handy with Microsoft Office and Adobe suites.
My trusty MacBook.
