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 Pitchfork, Uncut, Spin, Rolling Stone, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Reader, AV Club, Time 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 Tribune. I 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.
