Hello there! My name is Chelsea Brasted, and I am a news and culture reporter for NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune in New Orleans.

I love writing stories about people from all walks of life and finding the places where business and the world of art and entertainment cross paths. I enjoy reading, especially biographies and histories, but Harry Potter will always have a place in my heart.

When not covering New Orleans’ culture, you can probably find me playing with my pound pup, Oscar, taking a yoga class or experimenting with a new recipe.

Enjoy checking out my portfolio, and please feel free to get in touch with me. Use the links at the right to follow me on social media.
