My Poker Story:

In poker, luck will never determine your destiny. Only skill and mental toughness will. That’s why I fell in love with it at age 17. And I also fell in love with the first professional poker player I ever met too ( but for other reasons, obviously) Andrew is as sexy as he is good at poker. We met in Fort Wayne, IN. He was a college dropout and I was on soccer scholarship at the local university. On our first date, he stone cold bluffed a guy three times to not only win the tournament we were playing, but also, my heart.

In 2006, Andrew and I moved to Las Vegas with nothing but our car, clothes, poker chips and big dreams. I landed an internship at Card Player Magazine which turned into a full time gig (more on that story here). A few years later, I moved to PokerNews and got to travel the world covering the most prestigious tournaments and interviewing the best players in the world.

Then, in 2014, I quit to pursue poker full time. Since then, I’ve made a living playing $5-$10 no-limit Texas Hold’em cash games, made a 2018 World Series of Poker Circuit final table at the Bicycle Casino for $55,000, and am pursuing my dream of winning a major live poker tournament.
