About Me

I'm a Pittsburgh-based writer and researcher whose essays and profiles have appeared in The Atlantic, SmithsonianNarratively, The Rumpus, and others.

My Vela essay, "Her Hair," was long-listed for The Browser's 2015 Golden Giraffe awards, given to the year's best online articles.

Originally from Austin, Texas, I earned my MFA in Nonfiction Writing from the University of Pittsburgh in 2015. I'm also the Nonfiction Editor of Twelfth House Journal.
