I've written for several of the biggest outlets in the world, my award winning audio essays have appeared on NPR and CBC Canada through PRI's The World (Winner of a Big Market Edward Murrow Award). My essays and articles appeared in VICE (USA, CAN, UK, AU, BD, RS, NZ), Playboy, Daily Mail (UK), Washington Post, Toronto Star (CAN), El Confidencial (Spain), Outside Magazine, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Stuff (NZ), MEL Magazine, Salon and others. I've also worked as a Journalist Story Fixer for National Geographic Channel. I cover a variety of subjects, Spanish Bull Festivals (Winner of the Eh Toro: Encierro Divulgation Award), Health, Travel, The Literary Scene, and I'm a boxing insider/writer, I'm the former Chicago correspondent for FightNews, and Special Boxing Contributor for the Chicago Tribune RedEye where my boxing articles have appeared on the cover. Writing boxing comes naturally, I boxed for years representing the Windy City Gym, competed in international duels and won a Chicago Golden Gloves Title. (Note: I improved a lot after this bout below).
