Jeff is a writer with bylines in The Washington Post, Fodor's, USA Today, Reader's Digest, Parents Magazine, Esquire, Cosmo, Good Housekeeping, PBS, and Time Out New York, among other publications. He has also had stories and monologues published in several books. In addition to his writing, Jeff won the 2016 Iris Award for Photography and 2017 Iris Award for Philanthropy. His first book, 100 Questions for Dad, was published in September 2021.

He founded Stanchion in July 2020, in the midst of a pandemic and civil unrest, as a way of shining a bit of hopeful, creative light into the ever-creeping darkness, and to create something tangible and permanent in an ever-digitized and increasingly disposable world.

In addition to being a writer and photographer, Jeff is a proud papa to a pair of daughters, a husband, son and brother, European football obsessive, music lover, bread baker, cat dad, home economics star student, and decent human. Jeff's TBR is ever-growing.
