This 'About' page contains a biography of Aric Jenkins, a writer and journalist in Brooklyn, New York.


I write and live in Brooklyn. Currently, I work as a staff writer at Fortune covering the intersection of business and entertainment for the website and magazine. Before Fortune, I was a reporter at Time, where I carved out beats in politics, business, and culture. I additionally covered general assignment and breaking news on Time’s News Desk and contributed to other Time Inc. brands such as Money, Travel and Leisure, and Food and Wine.

Prior to Time, I worked as a staff writer at Mic and Newsweek Media Group. My work has also appeared in Brooklyn magazine, Maxim, Spin, Inverse, and various other publications.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy taking photographs and I'm confident behind the camera in a professional capacity. I’m also skilled in videography and editing software thanks to my bachelor’s degree from Temple University's film school.
