Drew Wood

Deputy editor and generalist extraordinaire Drew Wood's been around the media block with stints at Thrillist.com, Metro, and Minnesota Business to name a few. For a brief period in his 20s Drew left 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 is actually quite boring. He lives in Tangletown with his wife and two daughters, and would almost always rather be wearing a baseball cap.
