I'm a freelance entertainment journalist and bio writer located in Chicago focused on telling stories in the world of pop and alt-pop. A thoughtful interviewer, I love nothing more than asking questions an artist hasn't heard before and discussing things outside their music to learn more about how their values and interests shape what they create.
