I use this picture from Halloween because, much like Clark Kent, I feel like there is this alter ego about me. Those who know me as one thing (a sports reporter) likely don’t know me as the other (someone who writes and talks about love and dating), and vice versa.
In my career, I’m known as the guy who is constantly at high school sports games, tweeting up a storm, and (hopefully) as the guy getting to and writing stories others are not. That’s not the case with Thought Catalog.
Writing for Thought Catalog was a rewarding experience — from connecting with readers, to meeting writers I admired, to editorial freedom, to the platform it provided for my work.
My writing here has generated more than 4 million page views and has also been featured on The Huffington Post. My work with Thought Catalog eventually led to my first book, “A Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” being published through The Thought & Expression Co.
Below is just a small sample of my work — my favorite pieces written, to date. You can find all of my articles for Thought Catalog on my author’s page here.
