I grew up in New York, went to college in Arizona, and have lived in Chicago for the past seven years. Currently, I freelance write, teach high school English, and read the internet.

Kaufman’s Deli in Skokie. Lunch of champions.
The weather is in the 60s and I’m wearing a sweater. Time to drink all the pumpkin things, duh.
Highlights from Day 2 of Riot Fest: Wu-Tang, Metric, Matt Berninger from The National almost falling on top of me.
I waited three hours at one stage to be front row for The National at Riot Fest. It was 100% worth it.
When I was 10, @jamesmdeem took away my Offspring “Smash” cassette because they cursed. Last night, I saw Offspring play “Smash” in full at Riot Fest. I still want my cassette back, dad. 😉 #latergram
