Hey there, I'm Jenni Moore and I am an arts and entertainment writer, copy-editor, and sometimes-for-fun photographer.
I am Copy Chief at alternative newspaper, the Portland Mercury, and also contribute to its music, arts, and film sections. Sneaker Wave, my Mercury music column, appears in every issue and focuses on Portland’s hip-hop and R&B scene. 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.
