Philadelphia, PA

Piers has been writing film/entertainment stuff since the mid-'90s, working for alt-weeklies in Tucson and Philly and jumping into the online space with -- sigh -- AOL. Currently, he does bits for various NBC outlets; the last vestiges of his arts/culture magazine, two.one.five; and other joints as needed. He lives in Philly with his wife and young daughter and is working on brainwashing her into hating the Lakers at least as much as he does.
