Eli K has been a published writer since he was 15 years old and began working for The Austin Chronicle when he was in high school. After graduating with a double major BFA in Writing, Literature and Publishing and Journalism from Emerson College in Boston, he moved to Los Angeles where he worked as a screenwriter and producer for Fox Television Studios and subsequently began his own web series production company called Sweater Pants Productions. At the same time, he continued a journalism career, writing for national and regional magazines like Los Angeles magazine, 944, Venice and Zink. Currently, he writes weekly and monthly features and reviews for both online and print editions of Blackbook, Paste and CulturePop, among many other websites, sometimes under a pen name.


Eli K specializes in analyzing and critiquing across the creative field, as just about everything can be reviewed in some way, shape or form. Film, television, fiction, photography, art are all worlds he has spent most of his life in, as he grew up with parents who were professional artists and surrounded him with creativity.


Eli K is an obsessive sports fan, a music lover from his Austin, Texas upbringing and an avid viewer of television and film, due to the fact that he grew up watching his parents work in the industry. He loves being outside and playing games, from basketball to endless games of ping pong. Traveling is a must multiple times per year, as new experiences keep him and his work as sharp as possible.
