Pop Culture

The premiere issue of the magazine. Look for my column in the June/July issue.

I am pleased to announce that my column “Pop Culture” will appear in the June/July issue of Village Living Magazine.

The first one is tentatively titled “Male Models”. I hope this to be the first of many columns.
