Hello! I’m a writer living in Austin, Texas, where I work as senior editor at Austin Monthly, the city magazine of Austin. Formerly I was the founding editor of Edible Baja Arizona, a local food magazine serving Tucson and the borderlands.
I’m the author of Unprocessed: My City-Dwelling Year of Reclaiming Real Food (William Morrow 2015) a memoir of my year-long journey of eating only whole, unprocessed foods, intertwined with a journalistic exploration of what “unprocessed” really means, why it matters, and how to afford it. Unprocessed was named a Southwest Book of the Year in 2015.
My articles and essays have been published in Pacific Standard, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Orion Magazine, High Country News, The Bellevue Literary Review, and Gulf Coast. Head here to read some clips, and here to see some of the awards my writing has received, including from the Arizona Press Club.
I earned an MFA in Creative Writing nonfiction from the University of Arizona. I run, hike, travel—I speak Spanish and Portuguese—and love breakfast and chocolate chip cookies. I’m represented by the amazing Mackenzie Brady Watson at the Stuart Krichevsky Literary Agency.
