I write part-time for Roll 'Bama Roll, but I work full-time in Chicago. Prior to moving here in the summer of 2011, I spent two years in grad school at Harvard University and two years working in New York City with the Teach For America program. I am a proud 2007 graduate of The University of Alabama and a native of Jasper, Alabama.

I grew up as a diehard fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide, the school where both of my parents graduated. My dad took me to every single home football game from age six onward, as well as several basketball games growing up. To this day, no matter where I am, I never miss an Alabama football or basketball game. I'm also an avid follower of the U.S. national soccer team, having fallen in love with that sport as well after attending a few games in person.
