I am a working journalist with years of teaching. I have published for numerous outlets including NBC News, The Texas Observer, amNew York and In These Times. My specialties include the college application essay, analytical writing and long-term research projects. I have experience working with students in the fields of nursing, literature and philosophy as well as general studies. My instruction covers all areas of the process including initial research, outlining, organization and editing.

I am the recipient of an M.A. from the CUNY Craig Newmark School of Journalism, where I focused on investigative writing. Before that, I taught as a writing and philosophy tutor at Austin Community College for four years. I also honed the art of teaching the college essay as a college coach for two years at College Forward, an after school program that helps high school juniors and seniors apply for college.

Music Production

Music Production

I have become adept at quick audio production while pursuing freelance gigs recording and mixing soundtracks. I also have worked as a sound mixer on the set of two independent short films, setting up and operating microphones during the shooting and mixing the final audio. I got into the world of film production sound through my experiences composing, recording and mixing my own music, which I have done on Ableton Live and Pro Tools for over eight years.

College Counseling

It was my calling for two years to help low-income and first generation students enroll in college through College Forward, a non-profit college access program. I was a mentor to thirty high school seniors of all different backgrounds in an after school class which teaches students the ins and outs of the college application and financial aid processes. College Coach was a position that required a hefty amount of writing, editing, and interviewing. Each of my thirty students applying to Texas public schools had to write three college essays, all of which had to be carefully looked over and manicured by me. For the first several months of each year, I edited an average of three essays a day in addition to preparing and holding classes twice a week. I became adept at asking questions and maintaining a demeanor that allowed my students to realize and express their own stories.
