As a reporter at the Duluth News Tribune, my core job responsibility is daily reporting on stories tied, broadly, to the arts and entertainment landscape in on our ten-county Northland coverage area. That includes weekly roundups of “Best Bets” as well as weekly features, frequent briefs, a weekly column, and other stories. Examples of my reporting work at the News Tribune include:

I’ve also recently been doing some writing for Arts Midwest — including the stories of Starr Chief Eagle (May 4, 2023), Chicago’s Albany Park Theater Project (July 5, 2023), and Rock the Rez (Aug. 29, 2023). For U.S. News, I wrote about living in Duluth, Minnesota (June 2023). Additionally, U.S. News commissioned me to write informative pieces about the business administration major (Sept. 26, 2023) and the finance major (Oct. 3, 2023).

Prior to my Duluth move, I reported extensively on music for The Current (Minnesota Public Radio). Examples of my reporting for The Current include:

At The Current I also worked for several years on a project called Music News. It took various incarnations, ranging from a web post complementing a host’s on-air break to a daily video post and podcast; in the latter form, I was the feature’s principal writer and co-hosted with my colleague Jade.

I also reported for City Pages; unfortunately, that alt-weekly was pulled off the internet when it ceased publishing in 2020, and its archives are not readily available. From 2007 to 2013, I reported for the Twin Cities Daily Planet, a nonprofit citizen journalism project where I also served as arts editor.
