Hello!

Welcome to my online portfolio, which holds a comprehensive list of all of my work, including hyperlinks, scans, or screenshots where applicable. Articles are sorted according to subject: track reviews, album reviews, live reviews, musician featurettes, event coverage and feature reporting. Photography is also included, although most of my time and talent is in writing.

I am a cum laude graduate of the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg with a BA in English Writing. In 2011, I won the university’s Joan Didion Prize in Creative Nonfiction/Memoir and was featured in the literary magazine, Pendulum, and spent two consecutive semesters writing for the online student-run newspaper, The Insider. I have written for HeraldStandard.com, Pop-Damage.com, Examiner.com and InYourSpeakers.com.

I am currently looking for full-time employment. If you’re interested, please email me.

Below you can find posts on what’s new on the site, what I’ve been up to, etc. Look around and read as much as you want!
