Long-Form Features

As a newspaper reporter, I wrote many features articles, primarily covering music, entertainment, arts, and community news. I'm most proud of this profile story that ran in the early 2000s, although I wish I could revise some of its outdated references now that we live in a more culturally-tolerant (and informed) society!


Short-Form Features

I began my freelance career writing for blogs and broadsides. Here's an example of my entertainment pics for a free weekly publication in 2008.



I used to write reviews of North Carolina indie bands' records and shows. I also wrote a couple restaurant reviews for NC visitor publications. Now, I'm more interested in writing indie book reviews, though they take more time! The link below will take you to NC's Shuffle Magazine, for which I wrote some CD reviews. (Adobe Flash required.) But I hope to have more content here soon as I drum up reviews from the Pacific.
