Freelance contributor Stephanie Powers started her media career as an Editorial Assistant long ago when the Tampa Bay Times was still called the St. Petersburg Times. After stints in Chicago and Los Angeles, where she studied improvisation at Second City Hollywood, she came back to Tampa and stayed put.
She soon fell in love with the music scene and more importantly, the people in it. Stephanie has been writing for Creative Loafing since 2011 focusing on music and all things pop culture. She has also recently contributed to local non-profit Creative Pinellas’ Arts Coast Journal. When she is not writing, you can see Stephanie performing comedy, DJ-ing ;70s am gold with Sunset Sundays and most importantly trying to get her four-year-old son to listen to less Imagine Dragons and more Prince.
