Since 2001, I’ve been lucky enough to combine my loves for writing and music: I’ve worked on copy desks at Rolling Stone and Vibe, and my features, album reviews, and gear write-ups have appeared in Keyboard, Electronic Musician, Guitar World Acoustic, Acoustic Guitar, Drum!, and Premier Guitar. As a senior editor at Bass Player, former editor-in-chief of the Guitar World spin-off Bass Guitar, and editor-at-large over at, I’ve hung out with some of the greatest low-frequency manipulators ever. Here are some of my favorite stories.

Besides being a music journalist, I’ve been a copy editor for the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, The Palm Beach Post, and The Miami Herald; I’ve also been an editor/proofreader for the City of New York and a copy chief for Computer Shopper. Looking for an editor? Reach out!
