I am originally from St. Paul, Minnesota but I have been living in New York since 1997. Writing has always come very easily to me and I am very excited to be writing for Patch! Other than writing, I love live music, photography, reading and eating. I believe nothing in the world can compare to a live concert, and music is definitely my favorite thing to write about.
