Work has previously appeared: Local/Regional Magazine, National Television, National Radio, Online Newsmagazine, Book Publishing

I am an author, feature writer, and critic who has contributed to a wide range of print and digital publications. My passions are culture and the arts, politics, social science, and media. I have written about all these topics, for The Nation, Film Comment, Newsday, Gay City News, The Advocate, Cineaste, In These Times, The Italian American Review and Gay and Lesbian Review Worldwide. I also am a contributor to the online publications PopMatters, La Voce di New York, Rootsworld, and I-Italy.

My well-reviewed non-fiction book , "An Offer We Can’t Refuse: The Mafia in the Mind of America," explores some of my longstanding preoccupations as a writer: cultural mythologies and their social impact; ethnic identity and stereotypes; popular culture, especially film, and how such social categories as race, class, sexuality and gender interact in American society. I also am a contributing author to many other books, including The Essential Sopranos Reader (University of Kentucky Presses), Mafia Movies (University of Toronto), Our Naked Lives (Bordighera Press) and the Routledge History of the Italian Americans (2018).
