Hey! I’m a NYC-based journalist and media strategist with 15+ years at Newsweek and Us WeeklyCNN and MSNBC, and across digital media, plus recent consulting experience spanning live events, programming, communications, development, and media/talent relations.

My specialties include news; culture; film stories, reviews and festivals; parenting topics; programming and live events; media training; and LGBTQ advocacy work.

In 2018 and 2019, I have worked with the Nantucket Film Festival; Hachette Books / author Ndaba Mandela (Nelson’s grandson); Casey Cares, a non-profit serving the families of critically ill children; and NewFest: NY’s premier LGBT Film and Media Arts Org.

Recent essay writing: For Father’s Day 2019, I penned a Shondaland.com essay on coming to terms with our 7-year-old son Lucas’s passion for sports — despite my total lack of interest in athletics — and the unexpected friendships I’ve made with other dads along the way. (In 2018, I wrote this Refinery29 piece on parenting a jock.) Timed to Mother’s Day 2019, I produced this tongue-in-cheek Logo piece on Joan Crawford’s Top Parenting Tips.

Last year I completed a short screenplay called THE BUNGALOW, which focuses on brilliant, bisexual REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE director Nicholas Ray.

An event moderator and television presence throughout my career, I hosted this TED-style event during my 2018 reunion weekend at Northwestern University in which accomplished alumni shared first-person stories about a “Moment of Decision” that shaped their lives.

I’m always open to new opportunities. Email: bjs1nyc@gmail.com
