Overview

I'm a writer, editor, and educator with 5+ years experience. I hold an MFA in Writing from California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and a BA in Humanities from San Jose State University. I work primarily with fiction, but I consider that a very wide category, from thrillers through epic poems. I just love stories.
