JOURNALISM




LA Weekly

COLUMNIST
As a masthead columnist for LA Weekly, I told the complicated story of Los Angeles from many different angles.

I jumped off cliffs, climbed under bridges, and snuck into grave sites. I interviewed rappers (Chief Keef), tech CEOS (Hans Yang), councilmen (Jose Huizar), street artists (Plastic Jesus), real estate moguls (Jonathan Schley), models (Permaid), restauranteurs (Tyler Wells), and the Mayor of Skid Row (General Jeff). 




The Future Party

DAILY NEWSLETTER
I write The Future Party’s daily newsletter. It’s like the Morning Brew for the entertainment industry. It features curated stories written in an entertaining, digestible way to help Gen Z readers stay relevant at work.

A Podcast

Not a Huge Fan
For four years I co-hosted a podcast called Not a Huge Fan with my best frenemy Charles Disney. We were named a top podcast of 2017 by a Dutch newspaper.

Some standout episodes: Gimlet Whimper FryBurning ManGay Pornstar Philosopher, Disgraced Food Network Host, Real Estate Bro, Nazi Puncher, Alt Right Intellectual, Ethical Satanist, Homeless Advocate, Rabid Marxist, and all the Annoying LA Comedians you can handle.

One UK fan described it as “Far Future Digital Archaelogist PhD Thesis Material.”




A Press

Vandal Press
I co-founded Vandal Press, a new sort of publication built on micropayments platforms. We generated close to one million hits and made thousands of dollars for our independent writers.

Big ideas = big headlines.


I love news-generating, meme-ified, extremely online campaigns that don’t need expensive media to cut through the noise.

Crafting edgy concepts and pitching them through is my specialty. I’m driven by an obsession with figuring out with what makes people click.
