By day, I'm an online editor and digital strategist at The Star-Ledger, a Pultizer-prize winning daily newspaper but I also dabble in fiction, flash fiction, short stories and poetry.

My pulp novella 'FRONT PAGE PALOOKA' was released September 2013, written under the pseudonym Jack Tunney and for FIGHT CARD books.

On the features and news front, I've freelanced for such magazines as Bikini, Details, Chance, Men's Health and Playboy Online. I also wrote a column for the gambling magazines Casino Player and Strictly Slots.

Online, my flash fiction and poems have appeared at Zygote in My Coffee, Red Fez, Deuce Coupe, Gutter Eloquence, Shoots and Vines and Six Sentences.
