I started my career as a writer for alternative weeklies, earning my stripes at the Houston Press and later as a staff writer for Newcity in Chicago. I wrote constantly about music, film, books, politics and beyond. I honed my interviewing chops and wrote features and cover stories. This is where I learned to write. And all of this is still very much in my blood. The need is still in me. In this space, I will muse on things all things pop. Interviews. Reviews. Essays and more.
