I've been earning a living by way of microphones, laptops, keys, instruments, stories, questions, copy, verse, long drives, short menus and a famously even temper since Bill Clinton's second term. Jumped from college into journalism, picked up a writing/editing habit, collected a pile of W-2s and 1099s from the likes of A.V. Club, Utne Reader, MSNBC, E! Online, Salon, MTV.com, City Pages, Minnesota Monthly and the New York Post. Toured all over the United States and Europe as both a musician (mostly with Halloween, Alaska) and a production manager (mostly with The Bad Plus). Made custom songs for movie studios, toy makers and dance companies. Took up voiceover work in the early 2010 and promptly developed a penchant for speaking clearly and convincingly in service of brands, audiobook publishers, indie filmmakers and esoteric art projects alike. Spent a few years making creative ruckus with the crew at Zeus Jones. In 2016, set up a new pillow fort at GoKart Labs. Currently based in Minneapolis, with previous addresses in Chicagoland, the United Kingdom, Greece, West Hollywood and the capital of Wisconsin.
