I am a Brooklyn-based journalist, ghostwriter, editor, and adjunct professor of media studies at
Hunter College, CUNY, where I teach journalism. I also teach a course on cultural criticism at New
York University's School of Continuing and Professional Studies, and I have taught interdisciplinary
courses in the humanities, as well as numerous courses on film history, analysis, and theory.
I have written about such diverse topics as business, technology, design, contemporary art, film, and my avocation, competitive distance running; my work has appeared in American Artist, City Limits, The Independent, PAPER, Runner's World, the Utne Reader, and numerous other publications.
I have ghostwritten two books on new media design and digital filmmaking for a world-renowned Web
designer. I have also edited ad copy and corporate newsletters, and served on several panels and
awards committees to evaluate journalism, screenplays, Web sites, short online films, and new
media art projects.
In addition to my freelance and academic work, I am the editor at Veracity Worldwide, an international affairs and corruption risk consulting firm based in New York, and I manage the blog component of Contrary Magazine, a Chicago-based literary journal.
