JOURNALISM




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 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).

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.

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.

I’m Isaac.


A former VICE journalist who now makes marketing.

I specialize in newsworthy creative that cuts through the noise. Even better if it uses the news itself.

My strengths are concept development, longform and shortform writing, strategic messaging, and pitching.
