I'm a freelance journalist in Atlanta.
I love a good story. I cover a wide range of subjects, but my specialties are in city design/planning, business, and death (including funerals and cemeteries). I also occasionally write about food.
I spent months and miles reporting for The Bitter Southerner on a major pipeline project's effects on the home of the largest Native American community east of the Mississippi River. I also wrote a deep dive for Curbed Atlanta on the future of north Atlanta’s most affordable cities.
I've reported on why buying a home isn't as good a deal as you think for The Washington Post, women innovating the funeral industry for Vice's Broadly, and cultural attitudes toward dishwashers for TASTE. I was named a 2018 Rising Star by the News Media Alliance.
I've written since I was 16. Before freelancing, I worked as an editor at trade publications in aviation and hospitality, covering subjects from business to food to tech. I serve on the freelance committee for the Society of Professional Journalists' Georgia chapter, where I work on programming to engage Atlanta's freelance journalist community. I'm also a member of the Authors Guild and the Atlanta Press Club.
I'm from Atlanta. After graduating from the University of Georgia, I lived in France, where I taught English to high school students and perfected my French. It was in my cozy, oven-less kitchen where I learned how to cook crepes and binge on baguettes.
