I am happy to share this news; I made the 2014 100 Creatives List. Every other year, Phoenix New Times’ Culture Blog Jackalope Ranch puts the spotlight on 100 of the city’s creative forces. This is a fun lead up to the release of the year’s Best of Phoenix issue. I was pleasantly surprised when I received an email from the blog’s writer, Becky Bartkowski, indicating she wanted to include me this year. I did a little research about the List and discovered there are quite a few Phoenix movers and shakers on it! I am pleased and honored to be in their company.
All little bit about Phoenix New Times: “Since its founding in 1970, New Times has kept the Valley of the Sun’s feet to the fire. Over the decades, the newspaper has attracted millions of readers who consider it an unparalleled source of information and insight, from politics and business to music and the arts. Hard-hitting investigative reports …have earned New Times a reputation for journalistic fearlessness. The paper continues its tradition of award-winning long-form journalism while covering daily happenings and pop culture in its Valley Fever (news), Up on the Sun (music), Jackalope Ranch (culture), and Chow Bella (food) blogs. The total package makes Phoenix New Times a must-read for anyone interested in taking the temperature of the nation’s fifth-largest city and its environs.”
