hi there.

I’m a writer, editor and music journalist who’s good at keeping big projects on track. I like to tell stories about the places where culture, power and art intersect.

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 write and produce our weekly newsletter, review new music I love and sometimes talk on podcasts like All Songs Considered.

I studied anthropology at Vassar College (BA) and intercultural + international communication at American University (MA).

I’m also a songwriter under the name Keeper.

Thanks for stopping by.
