A freelance writer whose works have been mentioned on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, ABC’s Wide World of Sports and E! News Daily, Josh Gajewski has been published by USA Today, the Los Angeles Times and numerous other publications across the country.

Born and raised in Houston, Gajewski became one of the youngest full-time staff writers for the Houston Chronicle when the newspaper hired him to cover sports at age 19.

Upon graduating from the University of Houston at 23, he stepped away from sports and feature writing for the Chronicle and moved to Los Angeles, where he entered the world of entertainment writing.

He is now a regular contributor to the Los Angeles Times, writing about film, television and music, and has also penned several pieces for USA Today’s USA Weekend magazine. For the Los Angles Times, Gajewski has interviewed actors such as Matt Damon,

Robert DeNiro and David Duchovny, as well as musicians Dave Matthews and MIA. He also writes weekly blogs on the Emmy-awarded TV shows Californication and Breaking Bad.

For USA Weekend, which reaches 47.5 million readers through its inclusion in 600 newspapers each weekend, Gajewski has profiled celebrities Paul Rudd, Ryan Seacrest and Ashton Kutcher, among others.

His second cover story for the magazine – a feature on the new Man of Steel, Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) – appeared in the June 18, 2006 issue.

Also an aspiring author and screenwriter, Gajewski penned sniffing flowers from the bottom, an experimental book that weaves together a memoir about his family and the novel his family history inspired, as well as two feature screenplays and a TV pilot.

Gajewski, now 30, lives in Los Angeles.
