People call me “BAH” — as in the sound sheep make — because of my initials. I’m the senior music reporter at Mashable, where I cover all things music, including celebrity interviews, awards shows, song debuts, video premieres, album reviews, concert recaps, business happenings and festival highlights. Previously at Mashable, I was the associate entertainment editor, a role in which I coordinated coverage for major events such as the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys and MTV Video Music Awards.

I have worked as an online producer, editor, reporter, copy editor and designer for TechNewsDaily, Arizona Republic,, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Des Moines Register, Metromix and three newspapers in Nebraska. I have completed projects for The New York Times.

Stories I've written have been picked up by the Today Show, New York Times, Associated Press, Ellen Degeneres, Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph, ABC, E!, New York Daily News, CBS News, People, Us Magazine, Huffington Post, Entertainment Tonight, Christian Science Monitor, LiveScience, Newsday, Yahoo News and other outlets across the world.

I've been quoted in The Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post, appeared on TV and radio segments, and moderated panels for South by Southwest, Ad Week, Social Good Summit, Media Summit, Northside Festival, Capitol Congress and more.
