Four Letter Word

Four Letter Word began on January 31, 2012 as part of a class assignment during my second semester of graduate school. With a mission to explore underground culture Four Letter Word debuted with "Nerd Night: A Night out for Nerds" which focused on a series of informal pseudo academic lectures that covered everything from the super science to the truly arcane. Continuing to evolve over the years Four Letter Word explored culture and innovation in the Greater Boston Area and beyond over a five year period, from 2012 to 2017, using a rotating series of more than 80 essays, articles, interviews, video, audio, photo galleries and guest features which reached thousands of people in more than 125 countries worldwide.
