Originally a New Yorker, Agnelli obtained a B.A. in Creative Writing/English from the CUNY B.A. Program (after first attending SUNY Purchase & Hunter College). While in school, she wrote as rock writer “Trixie A. Balm,” amassing a sizable portfolio of press clippings. Since college days, her professional work has included publishing work both in journalism (for The Village Voice, Creem Magazine, Gig, others) and in songwriting (ASCAP writer/publisher with over a hundred songs written or co-written).
With over 300 articles published, Agnelli especially loves doing interviews and drawing out people’s stories. To date, she's conducted and published one hundred plus interviews, recently with Connecticut luminaries Lary Bloom, Ann Nyberg, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth (Talking Heads/Tom Tom Club). Other musical interviewees include Lou Reed, Patti Smith, John Cale, and Lindsay Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac).
Agnelli has mastered any form of copy writing she’s put her mind to, including the 500-word review, the one page press release, the 800 - 1000 word interview feature, and full length manuscripts (a 222-page unpublished novel manuscript, Shrinking, and a large-scope, non-fiction biographical work-in-progress). Above all, she's never missed a deadline. Additionally, she films and produces Flip video content, often for the New Haven Register companies.
