A native Hoosier and former Chicagoan living among the canyons of Los Angeles, my writing and editing is primarily rooted in my passion for music. I crafted zines as a punk in the 90s. My debut book, Jason Molina: Riding with the Ghost, was released in 2017. I have covered dance, television, women's issues and film on occasion, often as they relate to music. My byline has appeared in PitchforkUncutSpin, Rolling Stone, Los Angeles TimesChicago TribuneChicago Sun-TimesChicago ReaderAV ClubTime Out, FLOOD and numerous other print and web-based publications. I've also been a digital editor and content strategist in newsrooms and in advertising agencies, and was on the first-ever social media team at Chicago TribuneI hold a bachelor's degree in literature from Indiana University and a master's degree in journalism from DePaul University, with an emphasis on digital storytelling and longform narrative. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss a project, or something deep and nerdy from the music cosmos. I'm also available to speak about my work as Jason Molina's biographer, and about research and longform narrative. If you're a filmmaker interested in discussing a Molina documentary, please contact my literary agent Alice Speilburg: alice [at] speilburgliterary [dot] com.
