Professional/Personal Overview
  From under-the-radar bands to over-the-top family entertainment, hip dining to free events, they are all among the pop culture topics that I write about. My work has appeared in the L.A. Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Entertainment Weekly and the LA Weekly. As LA Parent Magazine calendar editor, I write the monthly event listings and spotlight articles as well as being a NAPPA judge for childrens music. I worked on metadata writing for the recently launched Saturday Night Live app. I was a regular contributor to City's Best Los Angeles and a columnist for No Depression Magazine. My experiences also includes penning press bios, writing liner notes, creating catalog content, doing research projects and working as a script analyst.
