I was born and raised in the Kansas City area before moving to Lawrence in 2001 to attend the University of Kansas. After bouncing around New York, Indianapolis and Phoenix for internships, I moved back to Lawrence in 2006 for my first "real world" job as a copy editor at the Journal-World, where I worked until mid-2016. I've been a freelance copy editor since.
Currently I live in Westwood Hills, Kan. When I'm not working you can probably find me plugged in to the internet reading analyses of the day's sports/politics/entertainment news, powering up with a latte from The Roasterie or Hi Hat cafe, playing the latest narrative-driven action video game, watching the stats update on my fantasy sports teams or binging an anime while criticizing the poor grammar in the subtitles.
My favorite words include boondoggle and copacetic.
