I’m a writer, photographer and adventurer based in Austin, Texas. I work full-time in the Communications department at the Texas County & District Retirement System as their lead content creator and storyteller.
I am pursuing my master’s degree in Criminology and Human Behavior/Psychology at Regis University, and I have had hundreds of freelance articles and photographs published by Austin.com, Austin Woman Magazine, Georgetown View Magazine, Hill Country View Magazine, Next Tribe Magazine, PictureCorrect.com, and more.
I feel most at home in my hiking boots and would likely survive a zombie apocalypse.
