I’m a writer, reporter, and editor from San Francisco, CA. My work has appeared in Pitchfork, 48 Hills, Bandcamp, The Bold Italic, Emerald Media, Eugene Weekly, J., PopMatters, Portland Monthly, Resident Advisor, Spectrum Culture, Split Tooth Media, and Willamette Week, among other publications.
I am an independent musician with credits on more than 50 releases. I regularly organize concerts and curated Let’s Keep the Hive Alive, a compilation to benefit San Francisco’s Honey Hive Gallery. I also write copy and press releases for bands and labels such as Oakland’s Ratskin Records.
It’s my great hope that my writing will not only entertain and inform my readers but also turn them on to media they might otherwise not have known about or open their minds to those they may have dismissed or ignored. As an editor, I have high standards for the factual and linguistic accuracy of any work that passes through my hands, and I have a reputation as a ruthless and efficient copy editor. My experience as a musician and radio DJ has given me many hours of audio-editing experience, and I’m also an experienced video and photo editor.
This website includes my portfolio, my full resume, and a blog containing stray writings and (as of August 2020) a monthly roundup of the new music I listen to every month.
