Hey there, I'm Jenni Moore and I'm an arts and entertainment writer, editor, and (sometimes) photographer.
I am Copy Chief at the Portland Mercury, also contributing regularly to the paper's arts, film, and music sections—for which I have my own hip-hop column: Sneaker Wave. I have also written about local hip-hop music and culture for We Out Here Magazine, Travel Portland, the Mercatus collective, and Weiden + Kennedy's On She Goes online publication for wanderlusty women of color.
I was born in Alaska and raised in Oregon, but I also have roots in Seattle, so that should explain why I embody so much of PNW culture. I went to the University of Oregon's School of Journalism and Communication (Go Ducks!), and moved to Portland in 2011.
I love my natural hair, live music, travel, avocados, volleyball, and Beyoncé. Not necessarily in that order.
