I’ve long been a hipstorian [sic] of quirky art and nontraditional culture. My first book, Brooklyn Spaces: 50 Hubs of Culture & Creativity (Monacelli Press, 2015), grew out of a decade-long cultural-history project chronicling DIY and underground artistic people, places, and movements across the amazing borough I call home. Much of that project remains online at Brooklyn Spaces.


I’ve written weekly events roundups for years and years, for a variety of sites, doing my best to keep my fellow New Yorkers aware of all the weird and wonderful ways they could be spending their time.

I’ve also had the pleasure to write a wide variety of arts and culture pieces, on everything from a DIY boat-building bacchanal to the eccentric world of hipster taxidermy to dispatches from an all-night Warriors-themed bike ride from the Bronx to Coney Island.
