Oh, hi there.

Welcome to this lovely part of the Internet.  Please, make yourself at home.

Feel free to fix yourself a drink. While you’re doing that, feel free to follow me on Twitter.

I’m a staff writer in the Style section of The Washington Post, where I cover pop culture. I previously covered national news as part of The Post’s overnight team, Morning Mix.

I’m also the author of an upcoming book about the actor Jeff Goldblum and the changing nature of fame and celebrity in the Internet age, titled Because He’s Jeff Goldblum. It will be published this year by Penguin Random House’s Dutton/Plume imprint (date to come), and it is easily the most wonderful and eye-opening book you will ever read. I promise. In fact, I suggest you buy two copies, as you’ll want to immediately give one to a friend. Make that three, if you’re the type of person with multiple friends.

Formerly, I was an associate editor for Southern Living and a frequent contributor for Mashable and The Week. I’ve also written for Time, Esquire, GQ, The Atlantic, Pacific Standard, The Week, The Washington Post and The Times-Picayune, among others.

I also co-created Or Something, a website dedicated to less frantic writing (that, in a display of how much less frantic it truly is, is on a hiatus).

If you’re looking to speak with me about anything — writing, the New Orleans Saints, various types of bubblegum, the dangers of tripping on cracked sidewalk pavement, the band Pavement, the desire to hire me or anything else — feel free to call or email, both on the Contact page.

For a look at some of my work, check out the Writing page.

I look forward to hearing from you. You’re funny and smart and beautiful. Etc.

Sincerely,

Travis M. Andrews
