Had a chance to work with old GQ colleague Ross McCammon on a fun essay for RL Magazine about my own prep origins and how prep has always been kind of punk:

“There was a whole slew of guys like him. They showed up to chemistry bleary-eyed in oxfords that looked like they’d been tumble-drying since the Reagan administration. Their fathers were titans of business, bankers, and real estate men who made the Dow move. They ensured their offspring had the best of everything. They also fully expected them to—at least temporarily—make a run at making a massive mess of it all. Because that’s what preps do best—they rebel.”

After nearly a decade in New York City, I am now living and working in Los Angeles, California.

I’ve written articles and personal essays for GQ, Esquire, Condé Nast Traveler, Men’s Health and The Wall Street Journal. I’m currently interested in pitching and contributing work that deals with modern masculinity.

I’m currently pursuing a graduate degree at The University of Santa Monica in Spiritual Psychology.
