Like most freelance writers, I wear many hats. In addition to freelance writing, I work as a journalist, a teacher, and a fiction writer. I received an MFA in fiction writing from the University of Michigan and published a novel, Home Leave, with Hachette in 2014. I write regularly for local Austin magazines and have contributed to Time Magazine, NPR, and the Minneapolis Star Tribune, among other publications. I’ve taught creative writing and composition at the University of Michigan, Carleton College, and the University of Hong Kong.
