What I do and what I’ve done:
Through the years, I’ve written approximately eleventy brajillion words about all kinds of stuff for all kinds of folks, delivered through all kinds of media. Newspaper and magazine features about Elvis Costello or Dr. Ruth. Blog posts for Realtors and companies that make Internet of Things gadgets. Website copy, Instagram posts, brochures, press releases — if it requires words, I’ve probably proudly provided words for it. Below, a few different examples that span across formats and years.
“Paramore is a Band”
I was and am a big Paramore fan, and I was honored to get the opportunity to paint a portrait of them as a cohesive unit, rather than just spotlighting singer Hayley Williams, as was often the case. Not long after, the thrust of this piece turned out to be… a little awkward. (Unfamiliar? Google, and pity me.) For my part, I think she and they meant this headline to be the genuine case. Relationships are complicated, bandmate ones especially so. I spent a quick evening rolling around Franklin with the band, and turned this around the next day. Photo by Viki Forshee. Read more here.
