I'm a freelance writer and photographer based in Austin, covering film, TV, music, and Latinx cultureFor the past six years, I’ve worked on profiles, features, and personal essays; interviewed drag queen activists, ghost hunterspoliticians, and served as Texas Monthly’s unofficial Selena correspondent. My work has appeared in Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, Teen Vogue, SPIN, Texas Monthly, and others. When I’m not writing, I’m usually in the pit at a concert, taking photos of my favorite artists. 


You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, or check out some of my prints here.
