Here, you will find an extensive portfolio of Angel’s print and digital work, product previews and reviews, sports musings, and a unique and personal touch to sneaker news, free from the perils of unnecessary objectivity.
He also felt oddly conflicted about writing this brief introduction in third person, but that’s just about done.
a quick overview
My work has appeared in amNewYork, ESPN the Magazine, SoleCollector.com, CBS and more. I’m a senior editor at SNY’s TheJetsBlog.com, and I was also the senior reporter for the short-lived NFL Magazine. I cover the X’s and O’s of the game and explore the lifestyle topics that extend far beyond. My reporting work has sent me through locker rooms and clubhouses, armed with a recorder to gather quality quotes. When necessary, I also copy edit and tackle fact-checking, because words are nothing without accuracy.
My photography experience began as a hobby with a fast-growing sneaker collection and a point-and-shoot camera, before evolving into the requisite visual component that I strive to include with all my written work. I deliver experiences with elaborate event photo essays, offer my own style of product photography, and apply just the right amount of retouching for that extra pop. I also dabble in video production, and have recorded and edited my own content to accompany stories.
I’m a long-time Internet nerd who’s been working with social media since before it was an industry buzz word. I’ve managed and moderated message board communities, and connected users through mobile platforms, including BlackBerry Messenger and GroupMe. My goals are to educate, foster friendships through unique platforms, and devise strategies to communicate more intimately in an immensely fragmented online landscape. I’m currently the social media manager for Flight Club New York, Inc.
