Hi, my name is Rachel.

meI’m a writer from Pittsburgh.

In a previous life, I lived in New York City and San Francisco where I edited science textbooks and ate a lot of tacos.

I now live in the East End of Pittsburgh with my cat, Faulkner, and a few plants I’m trying desperately to keep alive. Currently, I’m an MFA candidate in fiction at the University of Pittsburgh and the first Writing Pittsburgh Fellow for Creative Nonfiction.

I like throwing dance parties, making playlists, and digging for gifs.

At present I’m at work on a collection of short stories about love, women, and capitalism.
