About Jesse David Fox

Jesse David Fox grew up in Long Island where he watched reruns of the Simpsons instead of reading books. By his estimation, this makes him qualified to write about television, himself, and little else. He lives in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. It's VERY Greenpoint; he tries to fit in by working for a start-up, podcasting (http://bit.ly/eKNA67), tweeting (@JesseDavidFox) and not shaving. Don't even get him started on sandwiches.
