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 I'm most proud of this profile story that ran in the early 2000s, although I wish I could revise some of its outdated references now that we live in a more culturally-tolerant (and informed) society!
I began my freelance career writing for blogs and weeklys. Here's an example of my entertainment picks for a free weekly broadside.
Blogs & Reviews
I used to write a blog (now defunct) for The Charlotte Observer where I reviewed 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 book reviews, though they take more time! The sample button below will take you to a review I wrote to promote a journal issue at UH Press.
