I’m a Minneapolis-based writer and editor with a passion for music, a penchant for thrift-store shopping and a never-ending recipe repertoire.

I was most recently employed as an associate content director at MSP Communications, where I served as deputy editor of Delta Sky magazine, overseeing branded content and special sections and regularly contributing articles to the magazine. My first book, a biography of musician Link Wray, is due out from Bazillion Points Books in early 2021.

I’m also a freelance writer, editor and content strategist, working with agencies, publications and brands on all types of print and digital projects across many sectors (including travel, food and drink, music and culture, and economic development). I love editorial, but also adore marketing content. I’ve worked as a social media and content strategy consultant, food stylist, recipe developer and graphic designer. There’s also my time as a concert promoter and event producer, radio DJ and music director—and let’s not forget my illustrious career in food service. (Seriously, though, no one should ever forget their time in food service. It’s where we learn the most important life lessons.)
