Fiona McCann is a senior editor at Portland Monthly, where she steers the magazine’s arts and cultural coverage as well as the On the Town blog. When not out seeking her cultural hits in high and low places—she’s as likely to be found at a symphony concert as in a mosh pit, at a ballet performance as in a comics store—she creates and edits plump and colorful feature packages on such diverse topics as love and sex, pets and children, and Portland’s eternal love of pop culture. Since joining the magazine in 2015, she’s also covered school board challenges, sportswear upstarts, and a kick-ass Tetris tournament.  

In her past life, she was an Arts and Features Writer for the Irish Times, an editor at social news agency Storyful, edited and wrote for Time Out guides in Argentina, and worked for Reuters, Buenos Aires.
