Veteran Interviewer; Pop Culture Chronicler
Brad Balfour has drawn on film, arts, and pop culture creators as the subjects of his interviews and articles for over 25 years. In doing so, he has developed a new site, filmfestivaltraveler.com and his own content syndicate, BMBmedia.
Whether trading quips with actors such as Tom Cruise or
contemplating cultural hiccups with directors like Clint Eastwood, this
former midwesterner has spoken with everyone from such rockers as
the Rolling Stones and Pearl Jam, to writers like Hubert Selby and Ken
Kesey, to actors such as Viggo Mortensen and Meryl Streep.
He regularly contributes to such outlets as popentertainment.com, FilmFestivalToday.com, jerusalemblueprint.com, irishexaminaerusa.com, blackfilm.com and fearsmag.com and organizes screenings, panels, workshops on self-empowerment for filmmakers and writers.
Mired in his resume are stints as timessquare.com's editor in chief (covering everything from technology to food and travel), AM-New York's regular film interviewer, Irish Connections' founding editor, Creem Magazine's senior editor, Reflex Magazine's features editor and an editor at Heavy Metal. He has also dabbled as a publishing consultant, ad sales person, club deejay, and as a magazine publisher. His writings have appeared in Spin, Vibe, Omni, E-Radio, CDNow, Metal Hurlant, FutureLife, Takarajima, Look and Seventeen Magazine. He has traveled extensively but now lives in New York City.
