I translate client problems into solution-orientated native advertising campaigns.


I'm currently writing native advertising at BuzzFeed. I've worked with an enviable portfolio of global brands including Budweiser, General Motors, Porsche, The North Face, BMW, Old Spice, Lenovo, Sam Adams, Subaru, Jim Beam, and many more.

Outside of work, I write fiction. For the past five years I've been writing a novel about Central Texas river tourism and the crystal methamphetamine industry. Please ask me about it β€” my elevator speech needs work.


I was born and raised in Texas. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with majors in English, Philosophy, and Government. I wrote a thesis on optical physics and solipsism in Infinite Jest, which won a thesis prize. I've done research on David Foster Wallace for D.T. Max and The New Yorker magazine.


I miss my mom's carrot cake.
