By day, I’m a senior writer for Gawker, specializing in national insecurity: domestic discontents, guns, global affairs, and militaria.

Until May 2013, I bounced between DC, SF, and the South as Mother Jones' inaugural engagement editor and Tumblr dude, as well as its lead national security reporter. Before that, I worked at the Wall Street Journal, the Village Voice and the Tallahassee Democrat. My writing has also appeared in the New York Times, GQ and Newsweek, among others. I’ve done some stuff in Iraq, won some game-show money, and attended Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism to learn investigative reporting, political/military affairs, business and media news, and literary criticism.

I’m currently a candidate for the Ph.D. in creative nonfiction at Florida State University and at work on my first book, a personal and intellectual history of gun culture in America.
