Born in Arkansas, based in Dallas, I'm a writer, editor, and music lover filling my free time with miles outside whenever possible. I hiked the PCT in 2018 and 2022. My hiking-related life goal is to hike all 11 National Scenic Trails, but 18,000+ is a lot of miles to digest, so we'll just take it one at a time. I'm interested in people and our relationships to each other, ourselves and the world around us, and I write about that on my blog, Very Serious.
