Hi, welcome to Texas Style and Substance. I'm a writer for Texas Monthly where I pen the column, Object Lesson. I started my journalism career more than a decade ago at D Magazine and have worked as a writer or editor at Modern Luxury Dallas, F|D Luxe, and national magazines Lucky, Conde Nast Traveler, and Departures. TS&S is a place where I write about all the things that come out of Texas that I love: food, fashion, interiors, music, events. I hope you enjoy reading TS&S as much as I do writing it.
