ABOUT ME

I’m a news reporter well-versed in the art of covering crime, government and breaking news. Currently freelancing in Austin, I have had work published in The Washington Post, The Daily Beast, the Houston Business Journal, Silicon Hills News, the Quorum Report, the Austin Monitor, and I contribute to the blog Grits for Breakfast. Previously, I worked for the Associated Press during the 2015 legislative session and was a metro reporter with the San Antonio Express-News for several years.
I’m also a graduate student of journalism at The University of Texas at Austin’s Moody College of Communication.
My posts reflect my interests, curiosity, experience and experiments with new journalism tools. The content is a mixed bag, but I try to always keep it interesting and topical. Follow along, send me a tweet, post a comment or email me: eva.ruth@gmail.com. Thanks for clicking!
