I’m a narrative writer and editor with a diverse array of media experience — I’ve worked at newspapers, magazines, strategic communications/advocacy firms, and public relations offices, and as a translator. I’m particularly passionate about food and the way it intersects with surprising parts of our lives, and I’m also interested in public health, community safety, politics, and international affairs. In the food scene, I’ve covered culture and restaurants around the world, from Columbia, Missouri, to Minneapolis to Barcelona, in English and Spanish.
A story I wrote about Missouri’s status as the only state without a prescription drug monitoring program shared a first-place win for local business coverage from the Missouri Press Association in 2017, and pieces I’ve edited have earned wins from the National Scholastic Press Association, the Missouri Press Association, and the Missouri College Media Association. In addition to having served as an assistant city editor at the daily Columbia Missourian and as the editor-in-chief of The Maneater, the University of Missouri’s campus newspaper, I co-hosted The Mizzou View, a weekly news podcast, in fall of 2016. I’ve also spoken about thesis-driven longform journalism at a national leadership conference in Washington, D.C.
