Hometown: New York

I'm interested in meet ups and in getting to know people who are working in and across different media. I started in newspapers, went on to run an online newspaper and then to host a live talk show on NPR, all in Sacramento, CA. I write about music in all its forms at Stagetology.com, and I am working on a one man show for next year about my experience in the housing collapse in California, as a journalist – and as a bad investor. I am also a musician and songwriter, with one album to my name, on the web at davidwattsbarton.bandcamp.com. I am just getting my professional/artistic network together in New York. My only credits here are a byline in the Columbia Journalism Review and a guest appearance on WNYC, where I was invited to talk about solo theatre. I plan to do much more in radio, blogging, live theatre, public speaking, recording (many more songs to get out there) and of course, writing. I think that's about it, so far.
I'm a multi-platform music and culture journalist who moved to New York a year ago. I put more about myself in the Profile Questions section below. More room.
