Outside of writing, BJ enjoys the outdoors. He was an all-conference athlete on NYU's cross-country and track teams, and continues to run and remain active. He also enjoys illustrating and graphic design, reading philosophy, brewing beer, cooking tacos, petting dogs, and hitting his thumb with hammers while trying to hang framed art.
BJ is pursuing his Master's degree, with a concentration on graphic novel and editorial illustration. He also volunteered as an assistant coach for the university's cross-country team.
BJ initially studied communication upon enrollment at NYU, but switched his major to journalism after three semesters, and graduated from the program with an A average. He was captain of the varsity cross-country and track teams, and interned at Fox News.
BJ is an avid consumer of all types of media, and has written countless articles, reviews, and analyses about the entertainment industry. His style caters to the reader who wants to go on a deeper, more cerebral journey to understand the motives and makeup of the characters we watch on a consistent basis.
As BJ's taste in music grew, so did his experience as a writer on the matter. He initially worked as an indie rock album reviewer, and has since gone on to write hundreds of reviews, tweets, and opinion pieces of a breadth of music, from folk and jazz, to hip hop, death metal, and beyond.
BJ initially started blogging as a humorist, and has since interjected wit and snark into his writing across all genres. He has written for several men's lifestyle websites, has penned web series shorts and stand-up routines, and, in general, finds that humor is effective in engaging the reader regardless of the mood or matter of the subject at hand.
BJ is a prolific Twitter user whose posts run the gamut; sports, music, breaking news, television, politics, and observational humor are all topics on which he enjoys tweeting.
At BJ's core is his strength as a blogger. He completed one of the first formal blogging classes in the country while at NYU, and for the past 10 years has blogged across a multitude of platforms for various audiences, ranging from sports, to news, to lifestyle, and more.
