It all started when...
My mom handed me my very own copy of Anderson Cooper's book, "Dispatches from the Edge: A Memoir of War, Disasters, and Survival". I couldn't put it down; I was immediately hooked. With a knowing look, I ran downstairs, book high in the air, and said "I'm going to be a writer".
Every move I've made since has been to serve that goal. Since those halcyon days, I've graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism - News Editorial, and a double minor in Political Science and Photography.
With $40 bucks to my name, I took my diploma and moved to sunny Austin, Texas, where I've been living the dream ever since.
On any given weekend, you can find me at Spiderhouse with my dog Bebe, and my boyfriend Chris, or catching up on my favorite podcasts: Reply All, Revisionist History at the dog park.
