About Nicholas Pell
Nicholas Pell’s earliest writings appeared in punk rock bible Maximumrocknroll when he was just 15. Since then, his writing has appeared on VICE, Salon, LA Weekly, OC Weekly, GOOD and AlterNet. Before becoming a big boy writer who pays his bills banging on an old MacBook, Pell worked variously as a warehouse clerk, steelworker, boutique manager, advertising salesman, draftsman and telephone fundraiser, but all anyone ever wants to hear about is the six months he spent working in a porn store across the street from a middle school in Portland, OR. He lives in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles with his wife and two dogs that might actually be pigs.
