I've been working infrequently as a freelance journalist since April 2005, and contributing on a full-time basis since September 2007. In real life, journalism is my profession. I interned with Wikipedia in their public relations department in the summer and autumn of 2007, worked with WTSP, the CBS affiliate in Tampa, providing nightlife correspondence during the spring and summer of 2008, and rose to the job of editor at OMG! Magazine, a GLBT magazine in central and south Florida, in 2009-2010. I now own Out on the Town Magazine, a GLBT magazine for the Florida Panhandle, Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas.
