I'm a former pastry chef turned oral historian and writer. Originally from North Carolina, I've lived all over the country, before settling in my current hometown of Denver, CO. I hold a M.F.A. in Documentary Expression and a M.A. in Southern Studies with a minor in Gender Studies, both from the University of Mississippi. I also holds a B.F.A. in Photography from SCAD.
My current research and writing focuses on the intersections of baking with labor, gender, and race in both domestic and professional kitchen spaces. I am also working on a series of oral histories focusing on bake sales as a response to social injustice.
