About

Hello. Prepare to be thrilled by my bio. But don’t let the third person fool you. I wrote this myself. 

Jessie O’Brien is a Denver-based freelancer who specializes in culture and food writing. Most recently she worked as a reporter for The Durango Herald and DGO Magazine alt-weekly out of Durango, Colorado. She’s the former web editor for Vegas Seven weekly magazine and contributed to the international music festival and lifestyle brand lifeisbeautiful.com. She also is the former editor for the award-winning downtown Las Vegas news portal DTLV.com. As a freelancer, she’s been published in 5280 Magazine, Denver Westword, ArtsyBeer ConnoisseurThe Unofficial Guide travel book, and many more.

Jessie is interested in art and music and the eccentric characters who create both. She also loves food, reading and psychology—which is obvious since you were mind-controlled into reading this entire About page.
