I’m a Plan II Honors, Religious Studies, and History triple-major at The University of Texas at Austin, expecting to graduate in the Spring of 2016. I’m passionate about writing, politics, history, religious studies, music (especially hip-hop) and comedy.
As a writer, my works have been published in The Dallas Morning News, The Huffington Post, The Austin American-Statesman, Reason, Austin Chronicle, Dallas Observer, OC Weekly, OnFaith, Phoenix New Times and The Daily Texan, among other publications. Since I was first published in 2011, I’ve written over 150 articles, including news stories, opinion columns, music reviews, interviews, profiles, research papers, listicles, humor pieces, and letters to the editor.
