Writer, teacher, & writing coach sustained by running, spinning, and a yogic kind of living.
I write, I run, and sometimes I write on the run. I teach and coach undergraduate and graduate students on writing practices as the Assistant Director of TCU‘s New Media Writing Studio and an adjunct writing instructor at Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth, TX.
Most of my writing appears in GuideLive or The Dallas Morning News, focusing on lifestyle, arts and entertainment topics. To read some of my most recent work for those publications, click here. I’ve also written for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Indulge, DFW.com, K Magazine, The Des Moines Register, Juice DSM, and The Kansas City Star. To see print clips of past work, email me directly. To see my work as an academic writer, ask me about my dissertation research (gently), which focuses on the connections between mind and body for writers to run, flow, spin, lift, and do any sort of physical activity that supports the intellectual activity of writing.
