Dakota Black

Contributing Editor

Dakota Black grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis and attended typical Midwestern public schools where regrettable fashion was forced upon students by oppressive social norms. 
After graduating, Dakota joined the Marine Corps seeking adventure and excitement. At some point he went to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus, where he studied political science, global studies and English. 
After graduating, Dakota came to New York City and has regretted that decision ever-since. He'll probably never really leave and never really stay in this accursed city. 
He once impersonated Michael Bivins in order to attend a party for a famous photographer, just to get the free vodka and hors d'oeuvres. 
He has worked for Major League Baseball, various publications, and was chief editor of a very low brow fetish magazine in Manhattan.
