I am a New York City transplant from the rural Midwest. I grew up in southern Illinois raising cattle and playing baseball. I then ventured north to Chicago where I studied film, television and creative writing at Northwestern University, and I now work in the television industry in New York City. 

I love to consume and create entertaining content that features authentic characters in dramatic, true-to-life situations. The stories I gravitate toward aim to engage emotionally and intellectually, hitting close to home while leaving you with something to ponder. 

When I’m not hunting for the best brunch in the city with my girlfriend, Sam, I like to whip up old classics in my kitchen and explore new recipes from the blogosphere.
