My creative nonfiction and travel writing has been published in several online and print publications. I served as editor of Matador Abroad from 2010 to 2011, and I’ve also been named the grand prize winner of the 2010 International Food, Wine and Travel Writers Association WiFTy Scholarship.

In November 2010, one of my narrative pieces about traveling in Pakistan was published in a travel anthology titled The Expeditioner’s Guide to the World. If you’re interested in buying a copy or seeing inside the book via Amazon.com, click through on the image link to the right.
