Alec MacKaye a fifth-generation D.C native, is a musician and has been in a number of bands over the past thirty-plus years. From a family of journalists, writers and editors, and with the requisite collection of disparate and sometimes interesting professional pursuits, as well as extensive travels, he is caving to some sort of genetically encoded impulse to Get It Down and Put It Out. Currently a Lannan Fellow, he is enrolled at Georgetown University. He lives in D.C with his photographer wife and their two young daughters.
Editor’s Note: There are two people in the photograph. Alec is the one on the right. Morris Elliot, about whom Alec will be reading, is the guy to the left.
