Jessie O’Brien is a writer based in Colorado. She is currently working as a staff writer for DGO Magazine, a weekly in the tourist mountain town of Durango. She writes about everything such as her experiences picking up hitchhikers, feminist pole dancers and cheap and dirty dive bars. She likes being pushed outside her comfort zone, whether that means entering situations as an outsider or subjecting herself to masochistic food challenges.
She is the former web editor for Las Vegas weekly Vegas Seven, where her work focused on local news, art and culture. She is the former editor for award-winning hyperlocal website DTLV.com. She’s written about business, music, art, dining, breaking news, alien abductions and everything in between. Jessie is interested in art and music and the eccentric characters who make both. She also loves science and is a rock ‘n’ roll and magazine junkie.
