About Me

I blog about Bay Area arts and culture for Examiner.com. I wrote articles for the San Jose Mercury News, CenterstageChicago.com, alternative rock monthly Zero Magazine and Jungle magazine.

I wrote for the Oakland Tribune company for more than three years and penned features for The Herald-Palladium, a daily newspaper in southwest Michigan, before that.

In December 2002 I got my Master's degree in magazine publishing, news reporting and photography from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
