• About Me

    An Austin native.

    I was born and reared in Austin, Texas, where I attended three elementary schools, three middle schools, one high school, and one university.


    I've backpacked through Europe, gone on an archeological dig in the Belizean rain forest, scuba dived through the Atlantic reefs, and skydived over San Marcos. And, while hang-gliding turned out not to be for me, I did give it a shot.


    After all the excitement, I decided to head back to graduate school where I earned my MFA in screenwriting (with the help of a Michener Fellowship) from the University of Texas at Austin.


    Now, in my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, watching movies, and kayaking at Zilker Park Boats. And, of course, I write… a lot.

        There's a lot going on in the news right now. A lot of violence, a lot of climate change, a lot of wage disparity, a lot of discrimination... just a lot.
