- I’m the executive director of the Next Generation Leadership Foundation, a non-profit I founded in 2013 to inspire, mentor, and honor LGBT youth and young adults. The foundation grew out of my 13 years experience working as editor then co-publisher of Metro Weekly, where I launched the Next Generation Awards.
Over the course of my 40-something years, I've been a good little golden boy, a sub-Ivy-League college grad, an annoying activist, a very active party boy, a humorist and a journalist -- if those last two have any distinction. In addition to the magazine, I’m a freelance writer, book work, video game addict, and amateur tennis player. I have my hands full.
