I'm an editor, journalist, storyteller, and brand strategist with more than 20 years of experience creating engaging lifestyle and culture content across platforms for media companies both big and small. I'm currently the Deputy Global Editorial Director and U.S. editor of Condé Nast Traveler and an adjunct instructor in the publishing program at NYU's School for Professional Studies, where I serve on the board.
I came to Condé Nast Traveler from Travel + Leisure, where I served for nearly five years first as Features Director and then as Executive Editor. Before that I did a stint as the Online Director for T: The New York Times Style Magazine, and before that I did my first tour of duty at Conde Nast, holding multiple positions at Details, the last being Deputy Editor. Earlier in my career I worked for indies of various shapes and sizes: the pioneering design magazine I.D., where I was the final editor-in-chief after many years as a contributing editor; the avant-garde men's magazine V Man, where I was the editor; Tribeca Enterprises and the Tribeca Film Festival, where I worked on several projects; and the criminally under-the-radar digital culture magazine RES and its film festival RESFEST, where I did a little bit of everything. I (more or less) started out in San Francisco as an editor for the cult mp3 site Epitonic.com.
I live in Brooklyn with my wife and two children. This picture of the four of us was taken in October 2020 at Storm King during a mid-pandemic escape.
My resume is available on request.
