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.

Steve Larosiliere, Founder and President of Stoked Mentoring for Men’s Journal

By |July 12th, 2020|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Steve Larosiliere, Founder and President of Stoked Mentoring for Men’s Journal

Social impact stories are extremely important to me and I learned a whole lot talking to Steve Larosiliere, Founder and President of Stoked Mentoring with this interview for Men's Journal. “That was when I started to mentor foster kids—kids from…low income,” he says, before another noticeable hesitation. “I started mentoring Black kids.” Larosiliere went on to found STOKED with Selema Masekela. Stoked connects kids with mentors in action sports to provide opportunity and access while teaching leadership. To this point, the ...

Caldarella Ask Own Board Of to Lay Him Off As Economy Crashes

By |March 28th, 2020|Categories: Editorial|Comments Off on Caldarella Ask Own Board Of to Lay Him Off As Economy Crashes

I have written about David's Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation since day one and on occasion, done some volunteering. It has always been an honor to work alongside David Caldarella. With the coronavirus pandemic and the economy in a tailspin, Caldarella selflessly asked the board of directors of his own nonprofit to lay him off. He will try to collect unemployment to save his nonprofit through these tough times. I spoke with David, who maintains a positive outlook, for this ...

How to Ski and Ride Vail Like a Local

By |January 29th, 2020|Categories: Editorial|Comments Off on How to Ski and Ride Vail Like a Local

Courtesy Vail Resorts "...All right, let’s get the Vail jokes out of the way: ones ribbing the fabulous fur coats seen on Bridge Street, the $18 old-fashioneds, the Wi-Fi connected gondolas and designer oxygen bars to combat altitude sickness. To understate it, there’s nothing chintzy about this Interstate 70 gem with its luxury veneer. Nearly 60 years into the roadside resort town experiment (literally named after a highway engineer), shit-talking Vail’s cultural aesthetic has grown passé as its ...

Pyzel on Simple Tools for A First Backyard Board for Surfer Mag

By |January 13th, 2020|Categories: Editorial|Comments Off on Pyzel on Simple Tools for A First Backyard Board for Surfer Mag

DIY board-building is one of the most time-honored and creative aspects of surf culture. For a lot of salts, going deep into the garage and emerging with something that may or may not resemble a surfboard is a bucket lister of the surf experience. Imagine doing a stylish mid-faced turn or making an impossibly fast section on a sled with your own signature on the stringer. I spoke with John Pyzel of Pyzel Surfboards about the tools you would need ...

How a Shark Epidemic Is Changing Surfing and Community on Cape Cod

By |January 8th, 2020|Categories: Editorial|Comments Off on How a Shark Epidemic Is Changing Surfing and Community on Cape Cod

Cody DeGroff This was one of the more important stories I have written in a while, focusing on the Great White Shark problem on Cape Cod. Granted the water off Massachusetts is a bit colder than New Jersey, but I am trying to imagine how we would handle this on Long Beach Island. “My son is about to turn 14. I started him surfing when he was about 5. When he was 8 or 9, he’d be up ...
