Minnesota Monthly (2013-2017)

I was the lead reporter for Minnesota Monthly magazine’s “Scene” section, which features photos and first-person quotes of famous and everyday Minnesotans at local charity fundraising events. You can explore my Scene reporting here. I have also contributed long and short-form feature stories to the magazine on Minnesota art, culture, and business. (Photo: TJ Turner

The feature incorporates photography, video, illustration, graphic design, and animation. Each element was created by a different contributor. Pollen Midwest provided overall art direction and editorial oversight. (Photo: Marie Ketring)

Interviewing Cartoonist Marjane Satrapi (MovieMaker, 2008)

In 2008, Movie Maker Magazine published a Q and A interview I did with cartoonist Marjane Satrapi. She’s the author of the memoir Persepolis which was adapted into a film by the same title.

Writing: Personal Essay

“Falling is not failing”: Adventures in surfing (Port City Life, 2008)

When I lived in Portland, Maine from 2005-2008, I wrote regular freelance arts and business features for a now-defunct monthly magazine called Port City Life. They published this personal essay I wrote about learning how to surf. Working on this piece gave me a good excuse to put on a wet suit for the first time.
