I'm a freelance journalist + editor based in Austin, Texas. I've lived here on and off for 18 years. I'm a self-proclaimed food snob and a firm believer that a good nap can cure most things that ail you.
In my writing: I focus on data-driven storytelling along the social and health services vein, particularly foster care and mental health.
In my editing: I am lead part-time web editor for the Texas Standard, an NPR-affiliate radio news magazine from UT-Austin. We have our own supplementary style guide, but also use NPR's Ethics Handbook and the AP Stylebook.
