If you pick up the Weekly Alibi with any regularity, you may have seen my name at the top of a few columns of text. I’ve been writing for the Alibi as a freelancer since the fall of 2015, jumping from section to section based on the editorial staff’s needs and my own whims. In that time, I’ve gotten to learn a lot about Albuquerque and its people, and I’ve written some things that have — hopefully — informed or entertained you.
