I was reared in Panama City, FL, and I lived in Nashville, Atlanta, Malibu, Atlanta, and Nashville before moving to Brooklyn in 2014. 

In March 2016, I started working in the newsroom of The New York Times. Prior to the Times I worked on Vogue's research team, and, in December 2015, I finished a Master's in Journalism at NYU. My byline has appeared in The TimesThe AtlanticNew York ObserverInterviewThe FADERPasteNashville Scene and other publications.

From 1996 - 2005, I wrote and toured in one punk, one hardcore, and one Dischord-indebted instrumental band. I've since released two quiet instrumental records and one surf music collection. Sometimes I DJ, and I like to take photos
