Hey there! My name is Tyra. I'm a music and culture writer from the South Side of Chicago who's passionate about the art of storytelling and the power of truth.
I am currently looking for new work opportunities.
I have much interest in music reporting, however, I love all things pop culture and entertainment. My most recent position was as a research assistant at Chicago magazine, where I also worked closely with the arts & entertainment editor to produce the mag's weekly culture newsletter.
I am a graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. While in school, I served as President of the NU chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists. I was also Creative Director and Senior Editor of BlackBoard Magazine.
Take a look at my portfolio to get a better sense of the work that I’ve done, and then shoot me an email so we can start the hiring process. :)
