Given my undying love of words and my similarly deep-rooted love of baking and travel, I've also written about those things, mostly for the sheer joy of doing so. And to make my mom happy.
My current blog, Baker on the Run, was born my first year as an Assistant Professor — initially emerging as a baking blog dubbed The Shameless Procrasti-baker. The constant baking started when I was maybe 13, but after grad school, and after leaving Austin, I needed an outlet for all my pent up writing-needs. So I started writing about the thing that I was already doing all the time. Eventually, the site evolved into a more all-encompassing outlet for my thoughts and ramblings. It now covers baking, running, and my adventures as a digital nomad.
In terms of travel writing, my work has been a bit more scattered, and it’s mostly archival at this point. I've reflected on my personal adventures on a blog I titled CATEclysmic Endeavors, and in more recent years I focused my writing about traveling with students on a separate blog titled A Professor Abroad.
I also have a Tumblr rolling around somewhere, but y'all don't need to see that...
