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.

Magic Mountain Travel Guide for Adventure Sports Network

By |March 16th, 2019|Categories: Editorial|Comments Off on Magic Mountain Travel Guide for Adventure Sports Network

I recently did a quick trip up to New England with a few LBI locals that turned into a fun little travel piece for Adventure Sports Network. Ryan Johnson took some awesome photos and it was a reminder of how wonderful and basic a trip to Vermont can be. "....A mint on your pillow is nice. And a crafted hot drink by a gas fire pit, a high speed gondola, a cute faux village and a mountain boutique that sells ...

Burton’s Sustainability Goals for TetonGravity.com

By |December 17th, 2018|Categories: Editorial|Comments Off on Burton’s Sustainability Goals for TetonGravity.com

The earth’s climate has risen two degrees Fahrenheit in the past 100 years. While the effects are varied and dramatic, as one might imagine, it’s not the best thing for long, snow-filled winters. Not the best news for early season runs and those bonus days of spring riding? 97 percent of scientists are in agreement on the phenomenon. Photo: Blotto. Yet, the President of the United States doesn’t believe industry is changing the climate of the earth. “We’ll be fine ...

“Who was Andy Irons” for Teton Gravity

By |May 30th, 2018|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , |Comments Off on “Who was Andy Irons” for Teton Gravity

Full disclosure, I never interviewed A.I. I watched him, read about him, and wrote about his heats, but I never spoke with him. Yet a large part of my career was covering pro surfing at that time and I was fully aware of what he meant to the sport. I was on the beach at the Billabong Pipe Masters the day his son Axel was born on Kauai and Bruce flew directly over to the North Shore to surf his ...

Red Bull Switchboard

By |January 28th, 2018|Categories: Editorial, On Air Hosting|Tags: , , , , |Comments Off on Red Bull Switchboard

  Since I started snowboarding, it was always very deeply tied to surfing and skating. Even though I've always been merely average at all three, I've has this fascination with the crossover - surfing a big north swell at Holyoke in the morning and running up to the Poconos for the twilight session, hiking a hit in Northern California and then checking the jetty at Humboldt before dark, riding at Whistler one day and then making the trek out to ...

“Dark Horizons” for Surfer Magazine

By |January 21st, 2018|Categories: Editorial|Comments Off on “Dark Horizons” for Surfer Magazine

I grew up reading every issue of Surfer Magazine cover to cover. It has always been an honor to get a feature assignment for "the bible of the sport," but it's increasingly rare these days with the state of print media. Hence, I am very excited to share "Dark Horizons," in the February 2018 issue.  Surfer Magazine, February, 2018  While the photos are top notch and we did document the historic run of swell, I also spoke with key surfers ...

Dave Vision Tribute, The Aquarian

By |March 28th, 2017|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Dave Vision Tribute, The Aquarian

Of everything I have ever written, this is likely to be among the most meaningful to me. In early January, we said good-bye to Dave Franklin of Vision, aka DaVish, a guy who welcomed me deeper into New Jersey punk/hardcore 20 years ago, as he did for so many over the years that I now count as friends. On Sunday, April 2, we will celebrate Dave's life and character in the best way we know how - with a raucous ...
