Writing

I have written on numerous topics and in various contexts. My goal with this collection of sample pieces is to give a sense of myself as a writer in the big picture, to provide examples of my style and my ability to find and express a narrative.

Music: look at me using my degree. These are program notes I wrote for Chamber Music Tulsa, for their “evening salon” concert series aimed at reaching new audiences and introducing unfamiliar listeners to classical music, and concert reviews I wrote as their “field agent” scouting interesting ensembles to book for upcoming seasons.

 

The romance of football: These are a small selection, and happen to be my favorites, of the articles I wrote for Italian Football Daily in 2014-15. We were mostly a news-oriented site but whenever possible I pitched longer-form player profiles and – especially – explorations of the history of the game and its great characters.
