Welcome! I am a Michigan-born, Brooklyn-based editor, journalist, critic, blogger, and voracious consumer of media, food and music. I’m currently a senior marketing copywriter at General Assembly. Before that I was managing editor at the Brooklyn real estate site Brownstoner; prior to that I spent five years at the digital music retailer eMusic, the last year of which was spent as managing editor of Wondering Sound. I also founded a food and music blog Eating the Beats, where I created recipes inspired by music (it’s possible I’ll reboot this someday!), and I was co-producer of a seasonal food/music series in NYC called Supper Studio, where we presented an intimate concert and multicourse meal, with food inspired by the band playing. I’ve been a regular contributor to Billboard and several now-defunct publications (AOL’s Spinner.com and Venus Zine, to name a couple), and have been published in various other music and culture outlets including The Village Voice, Men’s Journal, The Billfold, Brooklyn Magazine, Brooklyn Based, Under the Radar, Heeb Magazine and others.
