I got my start as a sports reporter for my hometown newspaper while still in high school, and have since served as a writer and editor for numerous agencies and publications.

I was the founding editor of the Chattanooga Pulse alternative newsweekly, and am currently a contributing writer for multiple media outlets and agencies, including Movable Media, the Las Vegas Review-Journal, and Nooga.com.
