A veteran journalist, she’s earned stripes in marketing, copywriting, and social media campaign management working with clients that range from Global PR firms to record labels to local architects and makers. She’ll tell you whether those vintage thrift store drums are worth it, and will go with you to the ends of the earth. Just don’t let her navigate; she’s directionally challenged to a comical degree. Seriously, ask about the time she got lost in a bar after playing a set at SXSW…
