Welcome to The Passion of Christopher Pierznik!
Please, come in. May I take your coat? Can I get you a drink? Make yourself at home. Feel free to take a look around.
Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Christopher Pierznik. I was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I lived in Philly for nearly fifteen years and during that time I received my bachelor’s degree from La Salle University, my MBA from Temple University’s Fox School of Business, I bought a house, got engaged, got married, and had a child.
Eventually, I moved from my beloved city to a northern New Jersey suburb, where I live in a beautiful house on a quiet street on a hill, a few train stops away from New York City.
I have written nine books and have contributed to a wide variety of sites that focused on a variety of topics including music (XXL, Cuepoint, Hip Hop Golden Age, The Musical Outcast), sports (The Cauldron, I Hate JJ Redick), parenting (Fatherly), to everything else (Business Insider, Medium).
Below are links to the best things I’ve written the past several years.
As I’ve said, take a look around. Please click on something you find interesting. I’m sure there’s something under this banner that will appeal to you. I’ve written about a variety of topics, including hip-hop, sports, books, television, movies, radio, media, comic books, business, personal finance, creativity, writing, parenthood, family, and human emotions ranging from love to happiness to sadness to loss to regret.
That’s my story. Thanks for taking the time to read it and hopefully I’ll see you around this place again soon. If you want to get in touch in the meantime, feel free to email me or find me on Facebook or Twitter.

I read your article about writing, passion and life. If you were to die today, which one work would you give to the world? Which of your works defines you? Just as the pharaohs of old get a few sentences in a book, so will your life be summed up. Bring all your passion to bear upon that work.
Our successes in life arise when our subconscious mind or energy breaks through a rent in the tough shell of fear that we construct to protect ourselves from pain. It is that raw subconscious glue that grabs people and draws them toward you.
40 years ago, I wasn’t accepted to any medical schools in the United States, but I wanted to be a doctor. I decided to go to Mexico. It damn near killed me, but I made it back to the United States. There were many smarter students at my college who could have been doctors; but they did not choose to do whatever it took to achieve their goal. This is the way of the world. A few are lucky enough to have a clear and easy passage to wealth, recognition and riches; the rest of us must struggle.
