I wrote about the history of using sleep deprivation as a form of torture for Van Winkle’s. Not a cheerful subject but the story turned out well.
I talked film editing with master Hollywood scene cutter Norman Hollyn for Van Winkle’s. We talked at length about the opening scene of Fellini’s 8 1/2 and the ’80s high school dark comedy Heathers, which Hollyn edited. Click on Joseph Gordon-Levitt to get to the story.
I wrote a humorous look at the history of sleep for Van Winkle’s. I think people sometimes worry too much about sleep in our modern world and believe this article gives some perspective on how bad sleep used to be.
For Everup, I offered some practical tips on functioning without sleep. It’s all good advice I sincerely hope you never need.
I got to write three fun profiles of farms for The Atlantic’s website. I didn’t know that much about farming when I wrote it but I really enjoyed meeting the people who grow our food. They were all soulful people and I feel like my life was richer for meeting them. I think that feeling comes across in the story.
I got to write about the least loved movie of the year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, for Van Winkle’s. Turned out pretty well. My article, that is. The movie was garbage.
I got to write some money advice stories for Everup last month. It’s a topic I’ve long been interested in but haven’t had an opportunity to write about. Click on the images below to get to the stories. They’re good! You should check them out.
