Hello and welcome to my small corner of the Internet. I am a writer from New Mexico now living in New York. I cover culture, books, travel, French, philosophy, spirituality, art, art history and oddities. I have reported on scientists, collectors, acrobats, musicians, activists, Buddhist monks and museum curators. I am available to write for you.

My essays and journalism have appeared in The Huffington Post, Guernica, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, Ploughshares, Mask Magazine, Downtown Magazine NYC, The Tulane Review, The Daily Texan, fields and Opium Magazine. I was nominated twice for Pushcart Prizes for 2018, and I am a recipient of a scholarship from Electric Literature. In 2018, I became co-editor of Off Assignment, a magazine for behind-the-scenes journalism and literary travel essays. I hold a BA in English from the University of Texas at Austin and an MA from the American University of Paris.

I am also working on a novel. I am pitching the book as a mash-up of Jitterbug Perfume (Tom Robbins) and Giovanni's Room (James Baldwin). The story follows two young women on a road trip through the south of France. Their relationships play out against a backdrop of anti-Arab riots and post-9/11 political darkness, and there are elements of magical realism. Ask me about it.
