I am a multimedia arts journalist working as a freelance writer for several publications, including Paste and Relix magazines. I received my M.A. in Arts Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University covering the Spoleto U.S.A. Festival in Charleston for The Post & Courier newspaper. I served as an editorial intern for International Musician, the official journal of the American Federation of Musicians in 2010. Before joining the Goldring Arts Journalism program at Syracuse, I worked three years as a community editor at a newspaper in Northeast Tennessee, freelanced for regional magazines and interned at Atlanta magazine. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Journalism and Electronic Media. I’m also interested in film and have a minor in a cinema studies. In addition to music and cinema, I am obsessed with pop culture, tennis (a Fed Fan Forever), and all things Irish. I’m currently a professional nomad. I’m proud to be a Tennessee girl, but looking for adventure in a new city–my only criteria for this future place is that it hosts a lot of concerts.

  1. Looks like we come to blogging from the same background! Thanks for following.

    1. No problem. Ran across your blog and thought it looked interesting. We seem to also have some similar taste in music and film. I’d love to read your thesis on 2001. Did you ever post it to your site?

      1. It’s a 100-page monster (though I probably have posts that long!). I may do something with it, but it’s a rather banal very close look at things like character-development within the film (then how there is no main character). It feels like I was stating the obvious.
