"One to watch."

"A professional gay."

I have interviewed Richard Branson and Sophia the Robot, been on-the-road with The Flaming Lips, reported live from SXSW and SF Pride, snuck onto a flight at Charles de Gaulle airport, and been rescued via helicopter after spending 48 hours in the Yosemite wilderness. That last part, I don’t recommend.

These experiences have resulted in stories for Rolling Stone, Vogue Mexico, National Geographic Traveler, Vice, Wired, BBC Travel, Refinery29, and more.

In addition, I’ve worked at Apple and Instagram, and I’ve appeared on-camera for Macworld, MTV, and Queerty.com.

A Northwestern University grad, I began my career as the first male-identifying intern at Cosmo.
