As for my background, I started writing professionally about 10 years ago. I've written for The Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly, Vibe, and Spin, among other publications. Much of my journalistic work deals with music, and I've served as Pop Music Critic for the Buffalo News and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. I also wrote a biography of the late, great R&B singer, Luther Vandross: Luther: The Life and Longing of Luther Vandross.
I've spent a lot of my life in school (something I don't necessarily recommend, but it is what it is). I hold a Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Maryland in College Park, and am Associate Professor of Journalism at Northern Illinois University.
So, what's up with me now? I still write a lot (currently working on a novel), listen to lots of music (check out my DJ site for my music mixes), go to strip clubs (hit me up if u wanna "wing"), and love taking pictures.
My motto is: dream big and go for exactly what you want in life. Lots of crazy, cool shit will happen. Trust.
I got the chance to check out the porn world's two superstar Brents, Corrigan and Everett, at the Lucky Horseshoe, where they were promoting Fleshjacks. They were joined by the otherworldly hot Bel Ami boys: Dolph Lambert, Kris Evans, Jean-Daniel Chagall, and Kevin Warhol. (Those guys are like "Game of Thrones" hot!) I was particularly smitten with Warhol (the blond twink with the Bieber and the neck tatt, natch!) and checked out his work on the new Kinky Angels site. It gets my stiffest & sturdiest recommendation.
AMERICAN BOYS is a photo diary chronicling my adventures in gay strip clubs across the country from 2006 - 2009. It includes scenes from XL (Providence, RI), Tea Room Theatre (San Francisco, CA), Nob Hill (San Francisco, CA), Splash (New York, NY), Mr. Black (New York, NY), Hydrate (Chicago, IL), and Spin (Chicago, IL).
