It’s been a while since I’ve posted some updates! My new (well, new since February) job with Berklee College of Music’s online extension school has kept me incredibly busy. Just last week, I launched our revised blog network (along with the help of some wonderful developers!). My network blog can be found here. I’ll be updating it with Berklee Online news, stories about our students, and more.

I continue to write for Vanyaland in my (very few) spare moments. Expect lots of cool updates this weekend as some of us from Vanyaland are headed to the Newport Folk Festival!

Back in May, my boyfriend and I started a monthly Britpop night at Abigail’s in Cambridge’s Kendall Square. Britpop Social Club isn’t a traditional dance night. It’s a place for people who want to hear obscure Kenickie b-sides and Longpigs album cuts while drinking craft cocktails and munching on gourmet appetizers. However, we won’t stop you if you are overcome with the overwhelming urge to dance when we spin Bis’ “Eurodisco.” We took the month of July off but will bring Britpop Social Club back in late August. Watch Vanyaland for details.

'Til next time,

Some updates:

  • Friday was my last day working as a social media coordinator at Northeastern University. On Monday, I will start my new job as a Marketing Communications Writer/Coordinator at the Berklee College of Music. I wasn’t looking to leave Northeastern so quickly, but this job at Berklee is a an amazing opportunity and a huge step forward for my career. 2014 truly is shaping up to be a great year!
  • After a couple of months away, I recently published something new on the Huffington Post. Check out my guide to digital crate digging here.
  • On a much more sentimental note, my dad sold my car for me. It was my one and only car! Needless to say, I had tremendous emotional attachment to my first car. I’m very sad to see it go. I penned a tribute to the Camry over on my personal blog recounting our adventures together and the music that soundtracked them.

I’m thrilled to report that Vanyaland won the 2013 Boston Music Award for best music blog!

I was invited to join Vanyaland as a founding staff writer shortly before its launch in May of this year. I left the site that I was writing for at the time and made my Vanyaland debut with a review of Sulk’s¬†debut¬†Graceless and an interview with official Suede biographer David Barnett. I can’t believe that just over six months later, we’ve won the award for Boston’s best music blog. I’m so proud to be a part of this fantastic and exciting website!

I am insanely proud of this interview, so I’m linking to it right here on the much-neglected blog portion of my online portfolio:

Catching Up With Mansun’s Paul Draper on Huffington Post Arts & Culture

Paul opened up to me about producing The Anchoress’ album, his shelved solo album, and the great Mansun vs. Mansun Twitter feud of 2013. As a tried and true Mansun fan, this interview was the most exciting thing I’d done since interviewing Nicky Wire for WECB radio when I was a student at Emerson!

My online portfolio has amassed quite a few followers lately so I am going to use the blog portion to promote my latest articles. Those of you interested in reading an actual blog, check out Britpoptart. That’s where I ramble about my favorite bands and the various adventures that I’ve had because of them.

I am proud to say that my piece "25 Lessons I Learned By 25" from Huff Post Women has been translated into French for Huff Post C’est La Vie! I can now officially say that my work has been translated into another language! :)

Elsewhere on the internet, I continue to write regularly for the Boston-based digital music magazine Vanyaland. Some of my latest articles include one about Ben Sherman’s Icons Collection and a tribute to Mansun’s Paul Draper on his 43rd birthday.

After many, many months of searching I finally landed a job at Northeastern University. I work as a social media coordinator for student life. Interested in reading about both campus and Boston events? This is the blog that I curate.

Needless to say, I have been a very busy bee. I’m holding down three different jobs and settling in to Boston after moving out of San Francisco in late August. The Farmer’s Almanac tells me that this will be a brutal winter. Bring it on, Boston!

Hello internet. I have finally established my digital portfolio! Compiling my clips proved to be a tedious task but it’s certainly worth it. I am quite pleased with my extensive portfolio - I’ve been prolific over the past year!

You can navigate my website via the toolbar above. I’m not sure how often I will update the blog portion but I promise to keep my publication history up to date. Thanks for visiting!
