I joined the Missourian Staff in January 2014 and work as a community beat writer.My favorite type of journalism is mainly long form narrative pieces that tell stories. I love meeting interesting people and shedding light on who they are or what they do.

I was born in Dallas and have lived there my whole life. I love Texas but was extremely attracted to the Journalism School offered at Mizzou. Moving to Columbia was the first big change in my life and I have had a positive experience so far. The local culture is so eclectic and there are so many interesting people to meet. Columbia has proven to be more than just a college town like I suspected, and is a very special place to me.
