After stints in local journalism, research, and local journalism again, I'm continually tweaking and refining my writing focus.

I've spent several years as a freelance online marketing strategist and social media producer for small businesses and nonprofits. Most recently, I accepted a full-time role as a writer and producer at The Penny Hoarder, the U.S.'s largest personal-finance blog.

My blog, Quarter Life, eventually turned into my own vintage clothing shop, Beltway Vintage. But I still get nerdy about yesteryear on a regular basis, even though I closed the shop in 2015.

In 2014, I wrote Made in America, Maybe, about the decline and potential resurgence of domestically produced clothing in the U.S. I am the most riled-up enthusiast you will ever meet regarding this topic. Lots of hand motions.
