About Neal Lynch

Neal Lynch (pictured above, in the middle) is a plump and furry Irish-Italian-American, born in Toms River, New Jersey in 1980. (*NOTE: I feel weird writing this in third-person, so I’m switching to first. Deal with it *sunglasses dropping on face gif*) I grew up everywhere — Long Beach Island, NJ, Smithville, NJ, Lawrenceville, NJ, Sea Girt, NJ, Scituate, MA, Westwood, MA, Lenoir, NC, Cranston, RI, Hopewell, NJ, and Manasquan, NJ — and have lived in Baltimore, MD, Brielle, NJ, Hoboken, NJ (for 10 years), and Weehawken, NJ. You can probably look up where I live now and stalk me but there’s a chance I’d end up stalking you.

After graduating from Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville, NJ, I got my Bachelor of Arts degree in Film & Media Studies (useless) and a Master of Arts degree in Communications (even more useless) from The Johns Hopkins University (useful school for doctors and lacrosse players). From there, I worked at a bunch of places you’ve never heard of then at Playboy (ever heard?). I traveled to Austin, TX (for SXSW), Tallahassee, FL, College Park, MD, and Miami, FL (Girls of the ACC Tour)…

…Austin, TX, and Scottsdale / Tempe, AZ (Top Party Schools Tour)…

…Boston, MA (for CollegeFest), Boulder, CO (Campus Cutie Sweepstakes Halloween Party)…

…Chicago, IL (Lollapalooza Rockstar Brunch)…

…Las Vegas, NV (for Playmate of the Year) and Los Angeles, CA to party with Playmates (note to my wife: I never hooked up with them). Ask me if I’ve been to the Mansion, I love telling that story (note to my wife: nothing happened). Set the record for most times Friend Zoned.

My department at Playboy was outsourced to American Media, Inc., publisher of UFC, WWE, and Men’s Fitness magazines. I almost moved to Chicago but didn’t (I actually like ketchup on my hot dogs). So, I was hired as Managing Editor at COED Magazine then promoted to Editor-in-Chief less than a year later. As part of my job, I went to Vegas and St. Vincent island in the Caribbean. I met Kate Upton but didn’t get a picture. Also called New York Giants tight end Jake Ballard Bear Pascoe, which as a Giants fan is unforgiveable.

Here are the sites I’ve written for:

BroBible – 300+ blog posts generated more than 3 million page views

GMenHQ (New York Giants blog)

NFL Spin Zone – 180 articles generated 1.4 million page views

GuySpeed – 300+ blog posts that generated more than 3 million pageviews

COED Magazine – 1,100+ blog posts generated millions of page views. Increased daily page views by 300% and daily unique visitors by 100%

I’ve also written three feature-length screenplays with a fourth in the works (it’s like ‘The Hangover’ with monsters).

For four years, Neal worked as a Content Partnerships Manager at Dailymotion (“The French YouTube”), recruiting, on-boarding, and guiding video creators and publishers to get DOZENS of views. While with the video platform, Neal traveled to Paris, Montreux Switzerland (for the Montreux Comedy Festival)…

…Ibiza Spain, Austin, TX (for SXSW), Santa Monica, CA (for LA Podcast Festival), Los Angeles, CA (for Comedy Gives Back charity fundraiser live stream), Anaheim, CA (for VidCon), and Louisville, KY aka Allergy City (for Louisville Comedy Festival).

I did stand-up comedy off and on for four years. I’ve been on stage at Gotham Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, New York Comedy Club, EastVille Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, WOW Comedy Night at The Shannon in Hoboken, The Clayton Fletcher Show, Bomb Shelter Comedy at the GAF West, and the Hoboken Comedy Festival. I’ve also produced stand-up comedy shows at EastVille and earned a development spot at Broadway Comedy Club.

Currently, I work in the Digital Video Content Operations department for Condé Nast Entertainment where I upload, schedule, optimize, and publish videos for Architectural Digest, Bon Appétit, Condé Nast Traveler, Epicurious, Golf Digest, and W Magazine.
