Resident of Brooklyn, NYC


Passion-driven writer, editor, and content creator with expert level knowledge of the athletic shoe industry and culture. Able to consistently bring to life engaging content with absolute accuracy and credibility. Exceptional communicator able to thrive within a collaborative team environment.

After a lifetime obsession with sneakers, I have become a trusted voice, archivist, and curator of the history and current events of the culture in both my writing for media companies and personal social platforms with over 50,000 followers.

I’ve worked for top blogs in the sneaker media world including Sneaker News, Sole Collector, and Nice Kicks as a leading authority in the industry, and also done freelance copy writing and editing for clients including Stadium Goods, FILA, and Finish Line.

With my expert level knowledge of sneakers, elite feel for the inner workings and aesthetics of the culture, and connections I’ve made while working therein, I am offering my services as a writer and consultant.

Other personal projects:

Instagram account documenting sneaker sightings in sports, music, and pop culture throughout the years, as well as other historic sneaker ephemera including vintage print ads, commercials, and merchandise.

Tumblr site presenting a visual celebration of basketball and other pro sports with an artistic and often humorous eye.

Browsing through my old (and now worthless) basketball card collection, I realized they are actually one of the best documentations of what players wore throughout the years. After many hours spent at a flatbed scanner, Kicks on Cards was born.
