Eric Boehm is a reporter for Reason Magazine. He lives in Arlington, Virginia, but he will never consider himself a southerner. He wites abot about state government, pensions, licensing, regulations, civil liberties and anything else that strikes him in the moment. Previously, he was a national regulatory reporter for Watchdog.org and was bureau chief of the (now defunct) Pennsylvania Independent in Harrsburg, Pennsylvania.
His work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, National Review Online, The Freeman Magazine, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The American Spectator, The Washington Examiner, The Daily Signal, FoxNews.com and elsewhere. He received a bachelor’s degree from Fairfield University in 2009, but he refuses to hang it on his wall until his student loans are fully paid off sometime in the mid-2020s.
He has also lived in St. Paul, Minnesota; Rochester, New York; and Brussels, Belgium.
When he steps away from the computer, he enjoys drinking craft beer and good gin, cheering for an eclectic mix of favorite sports teams (mostly based in Philadelphia), updating his list of TV shows he intended to watch but never did, reading and traveling to new places. He was once featured in a Buzzfeed list-icle about the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
