Journalism

As a writer and editor (as well as an intern, reporter and freelancer), I’ve racked up a load of clips and links across the print and online mediums—once upon a time, that is. Here’s a semi-comprehensive catalog of my ol’ journo work.

A bunch of these links are dead now, but I’m leaving the list intact for posterity’s sake.
