I’m a magazine writer in Boston, a regular contributor to POLITICO Magazine, Smithsonian, and Next City. I teach magazine journalism at Boston University.
I’m a former staffer for Boston Magazine and Cleveland Magazine. I’ve also written for The Boston Globe, Harvard Law Bulletin, Agence France-Presse, People, Belt, and Rust Belt Chic: The Cleveland Anthology.
My interests and obsessions include politics, cities and transit, crime, science, arts & culture, American history, and Eliot Ness.
I’ve written about a micronation, a microvillage, surfing Lake Erie, and going places you’re not supposed to go.
I tweet at @ErickTrickey. You can email me at my first and last name at gmail.
