Kirk Miller

Currently InsideHook’s longest-serving resident at 10+ years, Sr. Lifestyle Editor Kirk Miller has been toiling away for decades (literally) as a writer and editor in New York. His love affair with journalism began at the University of Michigan, where he quickly realized interviewing bands for the Michigan Daily was far more fun than whatever his Political Science degree would eventually bring.

After a move to New York, Kirk has amassed an impressive CV at publications both respected and forgotten. His full-time editor roles include years at Rolling Stone and Stuff (RIP); an Editor-in-Chief position at CO-ED (where he interviewed everyone from Jennifer Garner to Jeb Bush); and a five-year stint as the lead editor at Metromix New York, which is where his love affair of drinks culture truly flourished.

Kirk has also written for Time Out, Spin, Maxim, Entertainment Weekly, Revolver and also dozens of publications and websites that no longer exist. Best interview? Obviously Dave Grohl.

After years as InsideHook's Nation Editor and Managing Editor, Kirk's current role has him focusing on the worlds of alcohol and technology (with a few dashes of pop culture and travel). He will probably never leave NYC, the best and most annoying city in the world.
