I’m a Portland-based writer, reporter, and editor, active since 2008. I graduated from the Robert D. Clark Honors College and School of Journalism and Communication at University of Oregon in 2016. I specialize in writing about arts and entertainment, especially music. I’m also an independent musician with strong audio- and video-editing skills.
My work has appeared in Resident Advisor, PopMatters, 48 Hills, San Francisco Magazine, The Bay Guardian, The Daily Emerald, Spectrum Culture, Hoodline, J., The Oregon Voice, Pretty Much Amazing, Eugene Weekly, KVAL, the 88.1 KWVA blog, Phluff, Split Tooth Media, and Modern Sound. I independently maintained the SF Rebirth blog for more than three years.
Artists I’ve interviewed include Michael Franti, Boots Riley, Datsik, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Odesza, The Presidents Of The United States Of America, Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit, Slug of Atmosphere, Drew Daniel of Matmos, Lonnie Holley, Xasthur, SWMRS, Rafael Anton Irisarri, Finish Ticket, and innumerable local artists in the Bay Area and the Pacific Northwest.
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.
This website includes my blog (with year-end lists), portfolio, résumé, and an archive of several years’ worth of my work.
