I consider myself a writer and creator because I love exposing all of the beautiful connections this world has to offer. I currently do writing and editing freelance work for a variety of different organizations. When I'm not reading, writing, or (over) thinking, I enjoy roller blading, swimming, and collaging.
I was born in Cleveland, OH and spent my toddler years in Kalamazoo, MI. I grew up in Toledo, OH and moved to St. Louis, MO to earn my Bachelor's in Research Intensive English from Saint Louis University. I spent my first postgrad year as a Jesuit Volunteer in Tucson, AZ and then moved to Leeds, England to earn my Master's in Creative Writing and Critical Life from the University of Leeds. I now write and teach in Los Angeles.
