I started writing towards the end of college for a magazine called LAX - yep, it was directly affiliated with the Los Angeles-based airport. While it no longer exists, like many print publications, it ignited my passion for expressing ideas through words. 

My primary focus is on music, and its convergence with tech, but I also specialize in ghostwriting and copywriting for brands. Here is an abridged list of interviews, reviews, announcements, and more that I’ve written for numerous companies and publications over the years – including AOL’s Spinner (now defunct), Spinning PlattersAXSMOG Music Network (sold to Beats Music), BitTorrent, PBS MediaShift, and Pearson Education:
