It seems inane to create a fixed bio for a fluid site, but here are some things about me that were probably at least true at one point in time. I’m a 29-year-old freelance writer (most often about entertainment-related topics) who burns the daylight oil (or kills moonlight) by working on other people’s writing (most often education-related topics). I used to read a lot and probably still do, but only in comparison to national averages, and the magazine I’m proudest of subscribing to right now is a bimonthly meta-puzzler called P&A. Among other useless facts, I don’t enjoy beaches (the film or the erosion), let alone long walks, though let together they’re probably terrific, which is in part why I write publicly at all. (Sharing Is Caring, no?)
I won an award from Binghamton University for my short fiction upon my graduation and then promptly stopped writing it, I edited a group of young theater critics for Theater Talk‘s New Theater Corps, and I’ve written or currently write for Film Monthly, Show Business Weekly, Time Out New York, CNN.com, and Slant Magazine. This site has been around (in various iterations) for over seven years. I occasionally help out at StageGrade. I’ve proudly served on the New York Innovative Theater Awards’ Honorary Awards Committee, live-blogged (on the official feed) from New Year’s Eve in Times Square, have never once gotten physical with PETA, and I sing baritone with the Voices of Gotham. There was a point at which I cared about my gamer score; I have logged over 700 hours in Dota 2; I still play Zynga’s Hidden Chronicles. I have a tendency to overshare or perhaps to simply overwrite.
Thanks for your time.
