Sometimes people are put in the unfortunate position of having to figure out who I am, so here is a cheat sheet to that! Question number one: it is pronounced "Cory."
I currently manage publishing partnerships across Vox Media (publishers of Vox.com, The Verge, SB Nation, Eater, Curbed, Racked, Polygon, and Recode). I help us succeed places like Facebook, Google, Snapchat and Twitter. How did that happen? Well.
In 2003, after years of amateur blogging, I left my civilian job to spend a year as the editor of Gawker. In 2005: I was an editor at the New York Observer
. In 2007: another stint as Gawker editor. In 2009: co-founded The Awl
, The Hairpin, Splitsider and The Billfold, a family of profitable, independent web publications. In 2013: published Very Recent History
, a nonfiction book of reporting. Sometime in there I ran a Q&A column for Hollywood folk in the LA Times
, and wrote features for places like Maxim
and Marie Claire UK
. (Guess which one paid best!) Also, was a columnist for Bookforum
. I'm an "adjunct assistant professor" in the Arts and Culture program of Columbia University's Journalism School MA program; that means I work one-on-one with students on their Master's Theses. I'm not really sure if you capitalize that, and I'm represented by PJ Mark at Janklow & Nesbit.
