Erin has over seven years of experience working with magazines and newspapers in various roles. She has worked as a freelance journalist since 2018, writing news and features about topics including Detroit's emerging tech scene, small business, entrepreneurship, startups, policy and more. She has written for outlets including Metro Times, HOUR Detroit, Model D and others.
Erin is a stark minimalist when it comes to her personal tech. She researches and writes on a 2017 MacBook Pro and uses an iPhone 7 to stay organized (and take photos to post on VSCO). A lover of vintage technology, her other personal devices include a collection of old film cameras and a Smith-Corona portable typewriter from the 1950s.
Erin graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a B.F.A. and a minor in political science.
