home | about jen

Jennifer Eberbach is a journalist @LivingstonDaily, husky whisperer, mother of chickens, breaker of news and rightful heir to the Iron Throne. She's also a bit of a ham.

I report county, townships and community news for the Livingston Daily Press & Argus in Michigan. The reason I do it is because an informed public is my favorite thing in the whole world. Michigan news is always happening, and I stretch out my butterfly net to catch some of it. I've spent the better part of a decade reporting news. Southeast Michigan is my stomping grounds. Send me your news from places like Brighton, Howell, Hamburg, Pinckney, Fowlerville and the Fenton area, and all the places I've come to love in between.

Local government, land and real estate development, pissed-off neighbors and local culture are topics that get me thinking. I'm an avid fan of live music, fine art, theater and anything in the creative arts. My chickens and ducks tell me I'm half-decent at hobby farming, an experience that has made me take up a personal interest in local agriculture, nature, national and state parks and outdoor recreation in general. I was already interested in those things as a consumer of those things. People's accomplishments are always good news to me. Let me know if you have done something cool, justified, weird, crazy or special in another sort of way.

I began my journalism career as a reasonably-successful freelancer, back in 2007, while working in the arts and cultural research. My educational background relates to contemporary history, cultural studies, visual arts and politics throughout time. Life added in a healthy dash of street smarts. I utilize it to explore the world we live in today and write about it.
