I’m back, for a second

The past week has been gruelling, non-stop at day job, and I’ve been putting in nights for CPA Magazine and a few others. So, my blogging fell of a bit. I think I’m clear of the insanity for a while, though. Time to enjoy the fruits of my labors. I’m in the current issue of New York magazine, for a contribution I made to the Winter Travel edition. I added a few lines to the story on Reykjavik, Iceland. Also, I’ve been busy at TraderDaily.com. My latest piece is on hunting for art in Helsinki.

Currently, I’m working on a story for a major national. It’s exciting … and killing me that I can’t release any details yet. I’ll say something just as soon as I can.

Do I see the light? Well, kinda

Held hostage by my chosen profession

Held hostage by my chosen profession

I haven’t put anything up here in more than a week. I have been absolutely upside-down jammed with working both jobs. I filed stories for New York magazine and British GQ since I last blogged, and I’m working on another for my dream publication (no names yet, sorry). And, of course, I’m still cranking out articles like crazy for CPA Magazine — I finished three last night and have another five or six to crank out this weekend.

But, I’m still finding time to have some fun. Ron Melendi, the manager of De La Concha, is launching a new blog, and I’ll be helping to fill it with content over the coming weeks, months and years. Also, though I haven’t been writing here, I have been writing. And pitching. I came close to Conde Nast Portfolio. It didn’t work, so I still have a kickass story to pitch around.

Day job has been keeping me pretty busy, as well, but you know I’m not going to talk much about that here. But, if you see my boss, tell him to give me the weekend off. I could use it.

Migrant Blogger on ValleyWag: Leading Hotels of the World

Remember my story on Leading Hotels of the World this weekend? Well, it got some love from the good folks at ValleyWag. I’m pretty psyched about this. I’m starting to run ValleyWag-, Fleshbot- and Gawker-caliber stories on my blog. So, let the fame roll in. Cash would be better.

Wreck Diving on Trader and Dealmaker

It’s Monday, so my latest travel article is on TraderDaily.com. Learn about the SCUBA diving opportunities at La Romana in the Dominican Republic. This is a kickass excursion, and it might actually be affordable for the lower-level Wall Streeters who are happy just to have jobs.
