This is the primary online home of Alexander J Hancock, a food and culture writer currently living in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. Originally from Baltimore, I relocated to New Orleans in my very early 20s, working a number of odd jobs before spending two years as the Programs Coordinator for the Institute for Quality and Equity in Education at Loyola University New Orleans. While there I handled communications for the research institute, helping to launch the its blog and co-writing a number of white papers.
With my girlfriend I launched an ambitious but short-lived food blog called Eat Together, which I maintained until joining Eater on a freelance basis to launch Eater NOLA and serve as that site’s founding Editor. I recently moved to New York to join Eater NY as Associate Editor. On the side, I regularly spend my evenings ranting about the NFL for the Black & Gold Review.
