I've written for The Daily Beast, ForbesGQ, Runner's World, The Point, RES, SOMA, Time Out, and many other publications. 

My May 2021 feature for GQ about a group of Ethiopian runners living in the Bronx, "The Marathon Men Who Can't Go Home," was named one of the six best features of 2021 by Longreads and made best-of-the-week lists at Longform, Longreads, and Pocket. My features for Runner's World have been the cover stories of the print magazine in the U.S., Spain, the U.K., and South Korea. 

I have ghostwritten two books, both with the late web designer and filmmaker Hillman Curtis. Both have been taught at design and filmmaking schools across the country. I have written extensively about film, particularly documentary, and taught college courses in film history and theory. 

I am also the editor at an international business intelligence and political risk consultancy based in Midtown Manhattan, where I work with analysts, business executives, former heads of state, ambassadors, and others to craft actionable essays and reports on geopolitical and economic matters affecting emerging markets. 

As a professor of journalism at Hunter College of the City University of New York since 2006, I've taught courses on reporting, magazine and feature writing, journalism as literature, and news literacy in a digital age, a course designed to create a more critically minded media consumer and to combat disinformation.
