I currently serve as the Comedy editor at Time Out Chicago, a weekly arts and entertainment magazine that covers the cultural life of the city and also do special projects for the magazine. I also served as Gay & Lesbian editor for 7.5 years. I'm also a busy travel writer and have written dozens of pieces over the past decade including destinations as diverse as Sydney, Australia to the Salton Sea.
The weekend I graduated from the University of Iowa I moved to San Francisco, California where I became production manager for author and artist SARK. It was technically a 9 to 5 job although we were allowed and encouraged to wear pajamas to work so I'm not sure how "real-world" it was.
I have contributed to and co-authored seven guidebooks I'm awfully proud of, have appeared as a series regular on the CBS television program "Evening Magazine" and have written literally hundreds of articles for Time Out Chicago and other publications. I'm also proud to be an adjunct professor at Columbia College.
New challenges. I don't like staying still and I'm happy to say that both teaching and writing are filled with a constant supply of new creative avenues which I love.
