I write for The New Yorker, GQ, Men's Journal, New York, The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Details, Sports Illustrated, Men's Fitness, Playboy, and many others.
Previously, I’ve been on staff at Business Insider and mediabistro.com. I’ve reported from the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, a coup in Honduras, and the 2012 Euros in the Ukraine. I also ended up running film festivals in India and Brazil.
Mostly, I just keep saying yes.
