Communications Professional in Cambridge, Massachusetts

I am a generalist writer, editor, and blogger who focuses on technology, business, politics, and booze. Also a huge music nerd.

Some might say that moving to New York City during the depths of the great financial crisis without any family, contacts, a job, money, or even a work visa - was not the smartest move. Others would argue for evidence of cojones the size of grapefruit. It is not for me to say.

I can say I have a BA in Political Science and Philosophy with a minor in English Literature from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. I have a decade of experience as a managing editor, and I've written for many other publications, both in print and online. I've worked on the radio for many years as a newsreader and host, and cruelly had a promising modeling career cut short due to a chronic habit of eating and drinking. I moved into content marketing in 2014.

Growing up I played piano, was captain of my debate teams, became a qualified surf lifesaver, and a music store manager, DJ, and event promoter. I enjoyed many sports including rugby, tennis, soccer, hunting, karate, anything on or in the water, snowboarding, racing professional motocross and supercross; and most activities that could accelerate my long suffering parents' aging process.

According to my beautiful wife, these days I mainly spend too much money on food and drink.

"Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about."
