Hello! I’m a freelance writer in New Orleans. My bylines have appeared in Thrillist, Country Living, Gambit Weekly, xoJane, The Huffington Post, BRIDES, The Bitter Southerner, Jackson Free Press, Thought Catalog and many other outlets. If you’re interested in working with me, I’d love to hear from you.
A native of Baton Rouge, I majored in English at Louisiana State University before getting my MFA in fiction from the University of New Orleans. From 2009 to 2016, I was special sections editor at Gambit, where I penned and produced fashion, home, wedding and shopping features. I served as creative director, wardrobe stylist, lighting assistant, craft services and coordinator for monthly fashion shoots, sometimes all at the same time. Unless otherwise noted, all photography on this site is by me.
When I’m not writing or procrastinating writing, I’m planning a new tattoo, reading, running, biking or playing keyboards and singing backup vocals with Shouts & Murmurs. Recently, I rekindled my relationship with my tenor sax. Still working on getting those chops back.
