I’ve written essays for Southern Foodways Alliance‘s quarterly magazine Gravy, the online travel magazine CarryOn, UNC’s campus newspaper The Daily Tar Heel, and Rival magazine. My best personal essays include:
Roast Pork and Open Doors: One New Year’s Eve in Havana changed my entire perception of the island country of Cuba. Published by CarryOn magazine.
Beans and Franks for the Motherless Girl: Musings on grief, casseroles, and healing. Published in Gravy magazine.
Behind Enemy Lines: A Daily Tar Heel column on my experience tenting in Krzyzewskiville, published the day the UNC men’s basketball team played Duke University at Cameron Indoor Stadium in 2015.
A Heart Divided: My sentiments on the Duke-Carolina relationship and the often under-appreciated connection between the two schools. Published in Rival magazine.
Colors: Not an essay, but a poem. Featured on the Cowbird home page upon publication in 2014.
