I moved to New York in 1993 from my hometown of Peoria, Illinois. I'm a writer who has written for NY Post, NY Daily News, Time Out New York, Manhattan Spirit, Gadfly magazine, Nerve magazine (the one that Legs McNeil edited, not that online thingy), Manhattan Mirror, NY Press and the Pekin Daily Times among others.
From 1989 to 1993 I published and edited POP magazine. The magazine was a best seller in Peoria, Illinois and was written up in Spin magazine, Advertising Age and the Chicago Tribune.
I was the editor, publisher and primary writer for my magazine fishwrap which ridiculed the world of mainstream magazines from 1993 to 2000. The magazine got positive press from Spin, NY Press, Sassy, the Chicago Tribune, USA Today, Men's Journal, Philadelphia City Paper, NY Post, Peoria Journal Star and the NY Daily News among others.
On January 10, 2010 I started my journey of going to one bar every night for an entire year without missing a night. The whole journey is recorded on my blog, A Guy Walks Into 365 Bars. The NY Daily News wrote a feature about the blog in March of that year and then the U.P.I. wire service picked it up and the story went world-wide. Check out some of the press here: 365 press.
I live in downtown Manhattan and if you'd like to contact me, the email button is over there in the upper right of the sidebar column. See ya, after dark!
