About

Hi. My name’s Eric. I’m a journalist.

I edit Streamliner at New York magazine’s Vulture. There I also semi-regularly write about animation. In 2020, I led a team at Vulture to compile The 100 Sequences That Shaped Animation, a 34,741-word history project celebrated by The New York Times, The Criterion Collection, and Cartoon Brew. (It won a New York Press Club Award.)

I previously edited for Esquire, Thrillist, Hyperallergic, and The New York Observer. I also co-founded and co-edited the animation journalism site The Dot and Line. I once worked for the nonprofit DonorsChoose. I’m a fan of textual analysis, black coffee, and thick noodles. I occasionally teach university-level lectures on magazine writing, digital journalism, and social media.
