hi there.

I’m Marissa Lorusso. I’m a writer and editor. Right now I live in Massachusetts.

As an associate editor on NPR’s Music and Events teams, I write and edit for NPR Music; co-produce the weekly NPR Music newsletter; work on projects like Turning the Tables¬†and the Tiny Desk Contest; and sometimes talk on podcasts.

I studied anthropology (B.A.) at Vassar College and intercultural and international communication (M.A.) at American University’s School of International Service.

I’m also a songwriter under the name Keeper and I make a newsletter called constellations.

Thanks for stopping by.
