ABOUT     ABOUT INTREPID MEDIA

THE HELP


Intrepid Media is staffed by an angry pack of very talented people.
Hip like adidas. Smart like Velma. Good looking like a Swedish rock band.

click me joe procopio 
publisher/founder
Joe Procopio trades in pop culture and tech culture, allowing him to poke fun at so many things. He's written for a number of online and offline publications from the late, lamented Smug to the fancy-pants Chicago Tribune and also for television. He's a novelist, a shredder, a joker, and a family man. Scoff at joeprocopio.com or follow on Twitter @jproco.


click me jael mchenry 
editor-in-chief
Jael is tired of being stereotyped as just another novelist/poet/former English teacher/tour guide/"Jeopardy!" semifinalist/bellydancing editor-in-chief with an MFA who was once an overachieving oboe-playing alto newspaper editor valedictorian from Iowa. She was also captain of the football cheerleading squad. Follow me on Twitter: @jaelmchenry


click me adam kraemer 
associate managing editor
A native of Elkins Park, PA, Adam Kraemer spends way too much of his time repeating "K-R-A-E..." He moved to New York City in 1998 and earned Master's in Journalism at NYU; don't let his writing fool you. He feels he is best known for saying the things no one is thinking, but afterwards wish they had been. He spends his free time wondering where all his free time goes and why he can never come up with a decent kicker for the ends of his articles.

Let's get real here. You don't want to know about me. You want to know about "me".

click me jeffrey d. walker 
chief white house correspondent
A practicing attorney and semi-professional musician, Walker writes for his own amusement, for the sake of opinion, to garner a couple of laughs, and to perhaps provoke a question or two, but otherwise, he doesn't think it'll amount to much.

click me alex b 
exotic import

click me erik lars myers 
corner pub bureau chief
Writer, beer drinker, brewer. Not necessarily in the order. For more, check Top Fermented and Mystery Brewing Company.


click me heather m. millen 
golden goddess
Heather has a penchant for drama, both personally and professionally. She secretly wishes people spoke in song and wholeheartedly believes that everyone deserves a standing ovation now and again. She finds it appalling that people reserve champagne only for special occasions, when champagne is clearly best on a Tuesday, while riding the subway, accompanying a slice of kick-ass pizza.


click me jeff miller 
generalissimo
Brown eyes, brown hair, bluejeans and a T-shirt. Digs loud guitars and good design. Easily hypnotized by green-eyed blondes, shiny leather, B-movies, and brightly packaged foods. He's got a bustle in his hedgerow - but he is NOT alarmed.


click me russ carr 
watcher
If the media is the eye on the world, Russ Carr is the finger in that eye. Tune in each month to see him dispersing the smoke and smashing the mirrors of modern mass communication. The world lost Russ on 2/7/12, but he lives on.


click me roger striffler 
spy
See that job title? Check it out: "Spy". How cool is that? I know, you're probably wondering what it means to be a spy for an international organization like Intrepid Media, huh? Well I'd love to tell you, but I can't. It's all part of the spy game, baby.


click me jack bradley 
foreign affairs desk
Born the son of a circus monkey, Jack had to overcome the stigma of having an address south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Struggling against all odds, he finally got his HS diploma from some guy on the corner, and proceeded to attend NC State University, where his records are now the "running joke" in the admissions office. In February of 2000, he moved to Sydney, Australia, to pursue a writing career full-time. Jack currently has a husband but no wife, no children, and a dog with great fashion sense.


click me matt morin 
single white male
Matt would love to be George Plimpton...welll, except for the being dead part. He supplies the doing and the writing. All he asks of you is the reading.


click me sigbjørn lund olsen 
boy genius
Sigbjørn still maintains that he is going to be somebody ... carefully neglecting the fact that all the ninety-year olds still singing into their combs in front of their mirrors, they too knew that they were going to be somebody. It is slowly dawning on him that his shot at being a star kid actor may very well have passed, so as a backup plan, he's currently attending university in Trondheim, Norway, studying film.



WHAT IS INTREPID MEDIA?


Intrepid Media published unique, original content and was a social network and promotional tool for writers and other artists.

Founded in 1999 and running through 2012, Intrepid Media grew to thousands of contributing members around the world, including New York Times bestselling authors, writers represented by major agencies, novelists, journalists, freelancers, technical writers, bloggers, students, and everything in between.

Intrepid Media published feature columns in the FEATURE section which now rotates classic content as well. These columns, non-fiction pieces covering a broad variety of topics, were written by our awesome staff writers.

Every Intrepid Media member at the free membership level and above posted their work to the GALLERY area. Columns were written directly on the Intrepid Media site via the STUDIO area.

Columns posted to Intrepid Media were discussed by other members and/or anonymously critiqued by other members. Reads and references are still tracked and made available to members. Membership included a profile which was automatically maintained and could also be customized.

It was a fun ride. And as always, thanks for playing along.



Intrepid Media is built by Intrepid Company and runs on Dash
