I am a writer, editor, proofreader, musician, and teacher. My experience includes work in a range of publishing contexts, from social media promotion and web publication to longform journalism and academic publishing.
I went to school at Temple University and University of Virginia. In addition to working as a teacher at both places, I’ve worked as an editor for the website iaspm-us.net and as a research intern at Library of Congress. I'm currently an instructor at Westminster College of the Arts.
My writing has appeared in a number of publications, including Jacobin, Popular Music & Society, Popular Music, In the Muse, and iaspm-us.net.
See Writing and Blog for samples of my work.
