It's not unusual for me to interview a local Boston comedian in the morning, a baseball shoe manufacturer after lunch, and a musician heading to SXSW in the afternoon. That's one of the best aspects of being a freelance writer. Some people would call it scattered. I'd call it keeping engaged and learning.
Though I have developed an expertise as one of few writers in America covering stand-up comedy on a weekly basis, I've also written everything from sports profiles to short news pieces and cultivated a knowledge of music, film, and books. I'm always up for the challenge of writing about something new.
I have written for a variety of publications, including The Boston Globe, The Boston Phoenix, Blurt, Mental Floss, Playboy, TVSquad.com, The New England Baseball Journal, Paste, No Depression, and others. For seven and a half years, I wrote a weekly column on comedy for The Boston Globe.
