Born-and-raised in New York, based in Austin, I’m a senior editor at Texas Monthly. My reporting and essays on politics, sports, film, and technology have also appeared in Rolling Stone, The New York Times Magazine, New York, Men’s Journal, Men’s Fitness, Hemispheres, and Grantland. From 2009 to 2013, I worked as a fact-checker and editor at New York Magazine. Among my favorite things: the writing of Jorge Luis Borges, the early records of Brad Mehldau, and the smoked brisket at Snow’s BBQ.
