howdy: Welcome

Hi! I'm a freelance feature writer and journalist. Previously, I was a tech reporter in New York for Business Insider and The Information. Before that, I interned at San Francisco Magazine (RIP) and Eater in San Francisco. While at The Information, I was a part of a team of reporters who won a 2020 SABEW for reporting on the state of Silicon Valley during the pandemic.

I work on feature reporting projects focused on culture. I love writing about my hometown, Las Vegas. 

I particularly love working on stories that give me an excuse to explore new places and speak to interesting people.

When I'm not working, I can be found outside. Or eating. Or both. I'm based in Los Angeles.

I love a good story. If you would like to work with me or know something you think I should write about, shoot me an email.
