I’m a writer, teacher, editor, and multimedia storyteller 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.

Currently, I’m an MFA candidate in fiction at the University of Pittsburgh where I’m at work on my first novel, a collection of short stories about love, women, and capitalism, and a memoir about debt.

Right now, I’m most interested in writing and sharing stories about the complexities of intimacy, the intersection of love, class, and gender expectations, and experiences of joy and disappointment.

In my spare time, I like throwing dance parties, making playlists, riding my bike, playing in my band Mani Pedi, and talking about academia and romance for the podcast No Chill.

I enjoy working on freelance copyediting, proofreading, and copywriting projects as well. Feel free to contact me if you’d like to work on something together.
