I'm the culture editor here. Before that, I was a staff writer here, starting in 2013, and at the Riverfront Times in Saint Louis; if you know anything I've written, it's probably the Profiles Theater story. "What is culture?" you ask. I've interpreted it to mean art and ideas that matter most to people: books, theater, visual art, hipsterdom, dogs, pool hustling, My Little Pony, artisan flour, Cubs fandom, and the evolution of feminism. Once I also got to play detective, like a reporter in the movies, but neither that nor anything else compared to interviewing Patti Smith.
