In 2009, I started my career as a music journalist at now defunct indie music publication FILTER Magazine based in Los Angeles. I started as an intern tasked with a special project to help innovate their digital product. I started writing for the publication (print and digital) and its sister publications throughout and after completion of my internship.
When I took editor roles at Inland Empire Weekly, CityBeat Long Beach and CULTURE Magazine, I owned the music sections as both a beat reporter and editor tasked wiuth planning calendars for print and digital and managing in-house and freelance teams.
When I joined the editorial team at The Desert Sun, I continued my music coverage completing high-profile interviews, investigative editorials and live concert coverage including Coachella and Stagecoach festivals as one of the main music reporters for live blogging and print articles.
