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, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Guernica, Catapult, Literary Hub, and more. 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. The story follows two young women on a road trip through the south of France. Their friendship strains against the cultural differences between them and the political riots around them, and, ultimately, optimism crumbles into severance. Ask me about it.
