writing and cooking in the desert
I'm a reporter for Courthouse News based in Marfa and covering the West Texas region. I also do some cooking and bartending, including with Wienertown! and Capri Marfa.

Before that, I reported at The Big Bend Sentinel and Presidio International newspapers in Marfa. I've contributed to Houston Chronicle and Houston Press and have written for Texas Observer, Texas Monthly, The Daily Beast and others.
