I've taken my journalism career from Memphis, Tenn., to my current home in San Francisco, where I focus on content strategy, management, and user growth. When I’m not writing or researching, I’m a hardcore Memphis Grizzlies fan, traveler, typography enthusiast, photographer, and a perpetuator of the Oxford comma.
I live for data. Learning how users consume content is the ticket to organic growth, and it's one of my favorite topics to research.
Ready to write or ready to manage—I don't mind rolling up my sleeves with problems, platforms, and strategies.
I'm passionate about content, whether it's in a print-focused trade publication or a news blog.

We don't go into journalism to be popular. It is our job to seek the truth and put constant pressure on our leaders until we get answers.
