Intro

Over the past 20 years, I have built a healthy freelance relationship with numerous publications while developing a solid career as a storyteller: journalist, video director and marketing writer.  This has ranged from long form dig-your-heels features to community journalism, travel features, product reviews,  in-depth character portraits and even coverage of world class snowboard and surf competitions.

Grain Surfboards feature, Eastern Surf Magazine

From epic trips to great swells, tattoo culture, underground music, the surf world, environmental issue, festivals, snowboarding, boating, local happenings, and social commentary, I love to tell the story. I’ve even started writing for some fishing publications. And I know just enough about fishing to know that I know nothing about fishing.

Kemper’s Superhuman Recovery for Men’s Journal

By |March 22nd, 2021|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , , , |Comments Off on Kemper’s Superhuman Recovery for Men’s Journal

As of Sunday, the World Surf League has released several weekly episodes on the phenomenal story of Billy Kemper's recovery. A little over a year ago, Kemper was fighting for his life in Morocco after a brutal bounce off the bottom. By December, he was back out charging Jaws. I interviewed Kemper specifically on his fitness program in rehabbing from his injuries. He's not only a certified XPT Trainer, but credits the program to his amazing comeback. Professional surfing through ...

Talking to a Made Guy from a NYC Crime Family

By |March 11th, 2021|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , , |Comments Off on Talking to a Made Guy from a NYC Crime Family

Growing up in New Jersey or New York, you learn a lot about Italian American culture, even if you're not Italian.  Combine that with the amount of classic mafia movies made in the last 40 years and you definitely feel how organized crime, or at least the legend of organized criminals starts to expand. I think we're all aware of stories and myths of who's a "made guy" and the things they did. Definitely adds some color to living here ...

Hunter Jones for Surfline

By |February 18th, 2021|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , , , |Comments Off on Hunter Jones for Surfline

As much as I enjoy the movement toward a more racially just society, it always gets me that we were discussing these topics 25 years ago in the punk rock world. But I'm very excited to get to write about people who are breaking boundaries for race and gender. "Following a year where the struggle for racial justice in America has everyone throwing keyboard haymakers at each other, Jones, a biracial surfer and content creator, isn’t afraid to discuss his ...

Vans Triple Crown of Surfing Goes Virtual

By |January 28th, 2021|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on Vans Triple Crown of Surfing Goes Virtual

Ok. Not the same as being on the North Shore in Hawaii but it was cool to talk to Jack Robinson and Cliff Kapono. The Vans Triple Crown of Surfing is a 35-year long tradition on the North Shore. But unlike everything else that had to go virtual, the change this year may have actually been good for the event as it allowed flexibility around swell/spots, gave the women a Triple Crown platform, opened it up to different boards and ...

John John Florence 2021 for Men’s Journal

By |January 8th, 2021|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on John John Florence 2021 for Men’s Journal

Started off the year getting a piece on a conversation with John John Florence published at Men's Journal. The first time I spoke with Florence he was about 13, coming out to surf the Belmar Pro. His mother is from Ocean Grove and he still has family there. The next time we met he was 15 and we chatted in his treehouse, out behind his Mom's place at Pipe. This could be a very interesting year for Florence, who currently ...

Guide to Skateparks at the Jersey Shore for New Jersey Life

By |September 12th, 2020|Categories: Commercial Work, Editorial|Tags: , , , , , , , |Comments Off on Guide to Skateparks at the Jersey Shore for New Jersey Life

Every once in a while, New Jersey Monthly taps me for a little piece on things happening along the coast. They use the term "Jersey Shore," more than I'd like but all good. This one was a round up of the Skatepark of the New Jersey Shore, on offer north and south. There are a few that have opened in this time. Kind of a roadmap for me and Archie right now. Also a glaring reminder that LBI and Southern ...
