About Me | Overview
I am a freelance writer and editor with a passion for journalism and writing. While still in college I started writing for the groundbreaking online music ‘zine, Addicted to Noise
, where I specialized in Britpop and had the opportunity to interview emerging bands like Oasis, Blur and Radiohead. I went on to work as the music editor at WIRED
magazine, where I played an integral role in the publication’s first-ever music issue.
I took a break from journalism for several years and worked in content development and online marketing for Internet companies such as AudioCafe, MySpace/Intermix Media and Phoenix Online Marketing. I eventually left the corporate world to embark on a freelance career, which allows me to do both corporate copywriting and journalism – the perfect combination! Since going out on my own I’ve written for a variety of publications including the Los Angeles Times
, Irish Times
magazine and for Internet companies such as Cake Marketing and SaveBig.com.
I relocated to Ireland (from Los Angeles) in March 2010 to shake life up a bit and try my hand at living abroad. I feel lucky and grateful to be able to continue working for my U.S.-based clients as well as pursue writing work here in Ireland. Since moving here I’ve also become involved in radio, appearing on shows like “Anything Goes with Gareth” on 4FM and “Late Lunch with Gerry Kelly” on LMFM.
I write about my life abroad in my blog, An American in Ireland
