With a Rush And a Push, I’m Out The Door

Two years ago, Dan Koller gave a kid with no knowledge of Texas whatsoever the opportunity to report on two of the most important communities in the state: Highland Park and University Park.

I stumbled out of the gate, but I caught my step, eventually writing a bunch of stories that I’m very proud of. By bringing me into the D Magazine empire, Dan inadvertently changed the course of my writing life, opening up the possibilities of FrontRow, D CEO, and the company’s flagship print product.

He also set me up to leave.

On Nov. 1, my People days will end, as I take a full-time position with the magazine. (Between now and then I’ll be attending a wedding. My wedding.) I’ll be the first full-time writer for the mag’s FrontBurner blog, trying daily to make the editors not regret their decision.

I’ll sincerely miss this paper, and its readers. But now I have an even bigger audience to yell at me when they think I’ve written something stupid. Thanks for the memories.

    This is very good news for FrontBurner. The blog has lacked life since Adam left. Hope you can bring his energy and humor back to the daily dose of routine.
