Overdressed for the beach in Cape Town. Typical.

My stories about culture, travel, running, books, and food have appeared in and on NewsweekRunner's World, Fitness, Esquire.com, The Daily Beast, Vulture, Women in the World, DuJour, the New York Post, and Fusion. I've also edited atDuJour and Billboard and write about entrepreneurship for Business on Tapp. From 2008 to 2012, I worked at Newsweek as the culture/back-of-book editor and at The Daily Beast as a homepage and features editor. 

I also write screenplays and plays. My short film script "Strangers in the Night" was a second rounder at the Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition, a semi-finalist in the BlueCat Short Screenplay Competition and a quarter-finalist in the ScreenCraft Short Screenplay Contest in 2015. Last year I wrote 30 scripts in 30 days and called it my #DailySlog. You can read them all here.
