I'm a freelance journalist in Atlanta.
I love a good story. 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'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, affordable housing in Atlanta for The Atlantic's CityLab, and cooking with banned ingredients 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 as head of the freelance committee for the Society of Professional Journalists' Georgia chapter, where I work on events and meetups to engage Atlanta's freelance journalist community. I'm also a member of 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.
