WRITING AND TALKING





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 a few bucks for our independent writers.

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 Fry, Burning Man, Gay Pornstar Philosopher, Real Estate Bro, Ethical Satanist, and all the Annoying LA Comedians you can handle.

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

 

VICE/LA Weekly

COLUMNIST
As a masthead columnist for LA Weekly and VICE, 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.
