About Me



Director of Digital / Music Publicist at Baby Robot Media

Former Talent Buyer for The Poplar Lounge in Memphis, TN

I Created The Ardent Music Blog: The Blog By Musicians.

I was the Publicist, Content Manager, and Social Media Manager for Ardent Studios and the Ardent Music record label from February 2007 until July 2012.

I was Big Star's social media manager and publicist from 2007 until 2012.

I hosted and produced the Ardent Sessions, Ardent Presents, and The Warm Up podcasts.

I was the managing editor for The Vinyl District - Memphis from 2010 until 2012.

Back in 2004 I created one of the very first widely read MP3 Blogs - Scenestars.net. It has been written about in Spin, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, Q Mag, BIllboard and the Commercial Appeal. I retired it in 2008.

From the spring of 2005 until the winter of 2006 I was a music writer for The Commercial Appeal with my own weekly column called On the Record.

I was the Memphis Flyer's Reader's Choice Winner for Best Blog in 2005, 2006, and 2007 for Rachelandthecity.com.

From 2007 until 2009 I hosted a variety of internet radio shows on Breakthruradio.com including The Bloggeratti, On the Road with Rachelandthecity and The Makeshift Music Hour.
