Andria loves writing for The Buzz because it’s a great excuse to talk to people all over town, all the time. While she enjoys the puzzle of putting words together to tell a story (when bored as a child she would go into her family’s guest bedroom to write “books”), she really has fun talking to friends and friends of friends, learning their stories and advice. From writing for The Buzz, Andria has learned that you should park toward the back, less busy part of a parking lot (safer), that an acquaintance spends time in his backyard naked (as told by the neighbors, also friends) and that you should never pop popcorn in a microwave (cook it on the stovetop in coconut oil…then add truffle salt). Andria grew up in Galveston and graduated from Tulane and The University of Texas. She has lived in Washington DC and Paris as well and would like to do the Paris thing again, thinking she’d appreciate it more as an adult.
