hi! you found my site! i started hippiesandhipsters in 2011 because i needed an online home for my musical obsessions. it lead me into a life of writing, including an MFA in Nonfiction Writing from Sarah Lawrence College.

since i graduated in 2015, my writing has found a home in other places: Entropy Magazine, Albumism, my Goodreads reviews (lol), and once and a while over on my Medium.

i believe that music writing can be anything you want it to be, and that every band is someone’s favorite. i’m a recovering music programmer that still listens to (and supports!) local radio because radio=life.

i want to be a part of something that’s bigger than myself. aside from the occasional review, i’m currently at work on essays. one day at a time, folks.
