Drew Wood
The Editor for mspmag.com and a contributing editor for the print publication, Drew Wood was formerly the Twin Cities and Travel Editor for Thrillist.com and, prior to that, the Editor in Chief for Minnesota Business Magazine. He lives in Tangletown with his wife and daughter, is tall, prone to bouts of flowery prose, and would almost always rather be wearing a baseball cap. It should be noted that for a brief period in his 20s Drew abandoned journalism to pursue an MFA in Creative Writing and an MA in English in hopes of someday becoming an English professor only to realize that being a English professor requires lots of reading and deep thinking, and would actually be really hard. Now he is a semi-lazy journalist who holds an MFA and an MA that are useful for little more than looking fancy on monograms.
