Brooklyn Spirits Trail

Here’s the first of two articles I wrote for Paste Magazine on the BK Spirits Trail.

And here’s the link to the full article.


Review: Brooklyn Pour Festival

I reviewed the Brooklyn Pour Festival for Paste Magazine. Over 100 different craft beers, and some stupid fake Bavarian hats. In other words, a good time. Read it here.

Travel: NYC Diners

I wrote a piece for BBC Travel about NYC diners because there’s really nothing better than some greasy diner food for breakfast or lunch. Maybe not dinner, though. You can read this highly controversial and polarizing article here.

Travel: Gambling in the Big Apple

I went to the Resorts World Casino in Queens last month and wrote about it for BBC Travel. Depressing fun.


Fishing for Winter Cod

It’s winter, but you can still go fishing. Read my account for BBC Travel here.

Happy Thanksgiving. I went turkey hunting last month, and you can read my account for BBC Travel here.

Read why you should get sloshed at a fancy hotel bar in my piece for BBC Travel.

Tavel: Backpacking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire

This past July, I went backpacking with some friends in the White Mountains. It was hot as hell and we ran out of water. Ready my account here.

Travel: Atlantic City, NJ

I have a travel story about Atlantic City running at BBC Travel today. Read it here, and get ready for a new season of Boardwalk Empire.

Travel: The Hidden Treasures of Seaside San Pedro

My piece for BBC Travel on San Pedro, CA (my wife’s hometown, not coincidentally) came out today. Read all about the dive bars, the thrift stores, and the hidden beaches here.

Travel: Vancouver Island’s Wild Side

My first piece for BBC Travel is running today, a story about backpacking the West Coast Trail. I hiked this with some great people last September, and it was one of the most challenging and amazing backpacking trips I’ve ever taken – and not just because it was my first backpacking trip. Read about it here and view the photo gallery here.

Subaru Drive Magazine – Death Valley: Land of Extremes

I recently wrote my first article for Subaru Drive Magazine, a travel piece about a trip to Death Valley that my wife, Hannah, and I took a few years ago. Read it here and notice how I only had to mention my Subaru once.

Iceland stuff

Last October, I made my third trip to Iceland – my second to cover Iceland Airwaves. This time, I was lucky enough to work for both SF Weekly and Reykjavik Grapevine. After the festival, I rented a car and drove around the entire country in 4 nights. Here’s how that turned out (scroll down through these PDF files to find my article).
