I'm sure the process is different for every piece you edit at GQ, but what's the general process for you when you're editing a piece?

I print out every feature I edit and mark it up with a pen. Then I crumple up the paper, light it on fire, and chant “WHO CAN RELATE?” That’s how our CMS works.

Any big summer plans?

Honestly, not really! Maybe I’ll take up a new hobby, like drinking.

What can people expect from your reading?
