Hi there.

I’m a guy who loves music, who loves to read and who loves to write. I’m a University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism graduate who has worked for the Charlotte Observer and the St. Cloud Times in a myriad of positions.

From 2014 through Nov. 4, 2016, I served as a music columnist at the St. Cloud Times. Now I’m looking ahead to the next chapter in my life. Music and writing are still two of my great passions, and I’ll be sharing those here with you.

Thank you for visiting my site. Follow me on Twitter @clshields1980.
