hi there.

I’m Marissa Lorusso. I’m a writer, editor, music journalist and recovering New Englander in Washington, D.C.

I’m currently an associate editor on NPR’s Music and Events teams, focusing mainly on our Turning the Tables series and the Tiny Desk Contest. I also make ourĀ weekly newsletter, write about music I love 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 Services.

I’m also a songwriter under the name Keeper.

Thanks for stopping by.
