Story
Tagline
I'm a freelance writer based in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Introduction
I started writing when I was diagnosed with a learning disability--I learned to type since my hand muscles were so weak, and I started typing stories.  While at a summer camp for learning-disabled kids, a woman from Lilly Endowment saw the camp newspaper and recommended I join Children's Express, a newspaper "by kids, for everyone".  I fell in love with journalism, and declared it my major when I went to Baylor University.  Although diagnosed with PTSD while there, I managed to recover and start a small freelance writing business.
Bragging rights
Co-authored "Freedom Underground", winner of three journalism awards, published in JAMA
Education
  • Baylor University
    Journalism, 1997 - 2001
    I was a journalism major with a religion minor, and I was in the Baylor Interdisciplinary Core. In other words, I decimated a small forest due to the number of papers I had to write.
