Independent journalist, 200-hour RYT-certified yoga teacher, Texan. Always looking for new stories to tell.

For three years I worked as web editor for the Houston Press, a Voice Media Group-owned alt-weekly in Texas. I was in charge of a staff of freelancers, the paper’s web budget, all of our social media platforms, and was responsible for curating content on the home page, among other responsibilities. In March 2013 my wanderlust got the best of me and I left the paper to freelance full-time. In June 2014 I became a 200-hour registered yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance. Before The Press I worked at dailies and community newspapers. I also lived in South Korea for a few years. I enjoy writing about lifestyle issues: fitness and health, self-improvement, travel, cocktails, pop culture, motorcycling and social/women’s issues. I am fascinated by social media; I have kept a personal blog since 2004 chronicling my journeys around the world, much of it on two wheels. I am available for freelance writing projects, blogging, proofreading, editing and more. I am open to new experiences and projects. I do not mix editorial and marketing projects, but I am interested in collaborative work with companies and organizations whose values I share. Please feel free to contact me with queries.
