I teach. I write. I laugh. I'm passionate about life. You can get the basics at RonenKauffman.com - Follow me on Twitter! @RonenKauffman!
Here are some ways I pass my time:
My writing is usually focused on music, culture, and the social sciences. I like big ideas, social justice, and substance.
My new book is called New Brunswick, New Jersey, Goodbye - Bands, Dirty Basements and the Search for Self and is available from Hopeless/SubCity. There is a MySpace page for the book here.
"Awesome wit and a natural aptitude for storytelling... Ronen's delivery is flawless." - AMP Magazine

Issue Oriented is widely acknowledged as the premiere podcast for fans of punk, hardcore, indie and metal. I conduct in-depth interviews with some of the most notable personalities from across independent culture; I also host exclusive in-studio performances.
My freelance work has appeared in magazines like Alternative Press, AMP, and Outburn; Over the past 15 years or so I've interviewed some of the most influential people from the world of independent music and culture, from originators like like Mick Jones, John Joseph, and Jesse Michaels to modern icons like Ben Weinman, Geoff Rickly and Tom Gabel. I've also developed media for a number of bands directly, including Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, and Burnt By The Sun. ..Music..
Though I spend a lot of time writing and thinking about music, I have been known to make a little music of my own. I've sung for a few bands - most recently, Zombie Apocalypse. (Check out my discography and band family tree at BandtoBand.com!)
I am leary of belief, but I do believe in being interdisciplinary.
I rock gear from Nephalim and Strhess.
