John Capone thinks people talk about themselves too much, so he’ll get straight to the point. He’s been everything from copy editor to feature writer to daily blogger to executive editor. He’s written for New York, BlackBook, Radar, San Francisco, and Jetsetter, among others and he was a regular contributor to NBCNewYork.com at its launch. He’s also edited three Zagat guides.
He has served on the jury of the Creative Media Awards four times, and spoken at numerous online media industry conferences moderating panels on social media, use of mobile and online publishing.
Additionally, he has twice been selected to have work featured in the Southampton Players one-act festival, served as the Editor-in-Chief of the lit magazine Proteus, and was a fiction reader for the journal Canteen. His heroes are Hunter S. Thompson, Jeffrey Lebowski and Harold Ross. Not necessarily in that order.
