I started writing about music back in the early nineties, when I took a job as the music editor for a small Portland arts & politics biweekly called PDXS. I wound up doing that for over five years, learning a lot about music and writing along the way. After PDXS folded, I kept doing freelance music writing for The Seattle Weekly and Portland's Willamette Week for a few years, but I haven't done any music writing since 2004 or so.
The bulk of my writing has been short blurbs about upcoming shows, since, not surprisingly, they're easier to come by. I have, however, done a number of record reviews and articles. To read these longer pieces and a sampling of my blurbs, continue on to my Writing Archive. (Note that these pieces are my final drafts, not the edited versions that appeared in print.)
