Hey there, I'm Jenni Moore and I work as an arts and entertainment writer, freelance copy-editor editor. 

I am Copy Chief at the Portland Mercury, and also contribute to the paper's arts, film, and music sections. I also write a music column: Sneaker Wave, which focuses on Portland’s hip-hop and R&B scene. In the past I have also written about local hip-hop music and culture for We Out Here Magazine, Travel Portland, the Mercatus collective’s My People’s Market magazine, and Weiden + Kennedy's On She Goes website for wanderlusty women of color.

I was born in Anchorage, but have lived in Oregon for most of my life. 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.
