I'VE been thrilled to co-author two NFT guidebooks (NYC 2013 and Brooklyn 2014) and I wrote the first NYC guidebook for Go! Girl Guides. I've been fortunate to study in Spanish Basque Country, intern in Moscow, complete a Fulbright Grant in Northeast Argentina, and write for NFT in Beijing. Raised in Spicewood, Texas, I'm still madly in love with New York...
