I'm a full-time freelancer based in Texas covering science, health, beauty and marginalized communities.
My work has appeared in Smithsonian, Popular Science, Pacific Standard, Medium, BBC Future, Racked, Teen Vogue, CityLab, Rewire and Vice. I've written about everything from open records laws and education to the concept of beauty sleep and why flag clothing is controversial.
I also write about personal finance and student loan debt for CometFi.com and NitroCollege.com. And I’m a fact checker for outlets like Latino USA.
Previously, I worked in corporate communications; was a reporter and editor at The Dallas Morning News focusing on local government, schools, nonprofits and people doing interesting things; and, before that, worked at a small-town newspaper doing just about everything.
