Morgan grew up in The Woodlands, finally escaping the suburbs to join Houstonia in May 2017. He writes news features for the magazine and edits Houstonia’s Arts & Culture blog, On the Town. 

A Northwestern alum, he has been a fact-checker for New York magazine and a reporter for a newspaper in upstate New York. He’s most excited to rekindle his relationship with kolaches back here in Texas.
