I have experience in reporting hard news and arts and culture themes, business writing, magazine writing, interviewing, audio stories, audio production, playwriting and web design.

I love writing about music, culture, arts, food, travel, fancy bathrooms, architecture, affordable housing, social justice, activism, dogs... the list keeps going.

“Journalism can never be silent: That is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air.”
