Journalist Sam Baltrusis freelances for various publications including Boston Spirit magazine and STUFF. He teaches writing and journalism classes at the Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE). His blog, Loaded Gun Boston, is an online destination focusing on the latest crop of made-in-Boston films, showcasing the behind-the-scenes buzz surrounding Hollywood East as well as the people, places and products featured. As a side gig, he moonlights as a tour guide with Haunted Boston, highlighting the city's historical haunts. In the past, he's worked for VH1, MTV.com, Newsweek, WHDH.com, ABC Radio and as a regional stringer for The New York Times. Currently living in Somerville's Davis Square, Baltrusis shares a home with a mischievous, female spirit with an affinity for sharp objects.
