I currently teach Writing and Literature in the School of Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies at Arizona State University. Prior to teaching at ASU, I also taught at Concordia University, Texas, and worked at The New School.

I have written for a variety of print and online publications, including the San Antonio Current, NBC Chicago, Rome Today, and even VH1, to name a few. Most recently, I was an editorial coordinator for the nonfiction book, VentureGirls (HarperCollins, May 2018).

Originally from San Antonio, Texas, I spent over a decade living and working in Rome, London, Chicago and New York City. I am currently based in Austin, Texas, and I hold an M.A. in English Literature from Texas A&M University-S.A., and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing-Nonfiction from The New School in New York City.
