Professional/Personal Overview
  My work runs the gamut, from fun and travel pieces to comic essays to wildlife conservation articles. I regularly contribute to the Huffington Post, write and maintain two of my own blogs and have been published in Texas Monthly and the San Antonio Express News.

My professional background is not limited to writing & editing. I also received my law degree from a top 20 school and practiced for several years--first for a magic circle firm in London, then at the Federal Communications Commission.

I've lived and traveled in a dizzying array of places, making me a versatile writer with a diverse portfolio of projects and ideas.
