A native Hoosier and longtime Chicagoan living among the canyons of Los Angeles, my work is an extension of my lifelong relationship with music. I crafted zines as a 90s punk rock kid. My debut book, Jason Molina: Riding with the Ghost, was released in hardback in 2017 and in paperback the following year. My byline has appeared in PitchforkUncutSpin, Rolling Stone, Los Angeles TimesChicago TribuneChicago Sun-TimesChicago ReaderAV ClubTime Out, FLOOD, Jezebel, No Depression and numerous other print and web-based publications. I've been a staff music editor, critic, digital editor and content strategist, and was on the first-ever social media team at Chicago Tribune. 

I hold a BA in English from Indiana University and an MA in Journalism from DePaul University. 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.
