I hail from Portland, Ore. originally, where I appreciated a liberal upbringing, but chose the Missouri School of Journalism to learn about life outside the bubble. Adventures in six cities over the last four years at major publications have given me more talking points with people. I’m hungry to expand my travels and knowledge in California this winter.
I pride myself on writing 120 wpm, overanalyzing the details of life (and death) and crafting abstract personal narratives. My dream journalistic story is researching what toothpaste brands the most powerful people in the world use, but I have yet to find a publication that cares.
