I like to do a lot of different things, some of which you can see on this website. I’m currently a writer at Yahoo Finance where I cover consumer stuff, tech, and quirky personal finance stuff. I used to be a reporter at Money (Time.com/Money), and before that Deputy Editor at Thrillist Tech. Before that, I was at Reviewed.com (a division of USA Today Tech) where I wrote about consumer products and edited a science blog. I’m from Vermont and I graduated from Middlebury College with a B.A. in Spanish, with stops at University of Guadalajara in Mexico and Dartmouth College to study international stuff and music, respectively.
In my spare time, I write, play music, bike, climb, run, explore other stuff I’m into and write freelance stuff about cycling, money, other sports, culture, books, and more. I also sometimes help out with video editing/cinematography, ad copy, translation (Spanish to English, English to Spanish, and French to English), art, photography, hair cutting, posing for paintings, pick-up basketball, track coaching, and bicycle maintenance. I’ve made two bike frames (with help) and like to make wheels for myself and others.
I also use my years of experience rooting through my parents’ old Yardbirds records, formal studies of western classical music theory and history, 18 years of guitar playing, and impeccable taste (lol) to maintain a casual and slightly anonymous music blog, chronicling What The Kids Are Listening To at very sporadic intervals. Investigate if your ears aren’t satisfied with their current sonic situation.
