I look forward to reading your words! I live in the DC Metro area and have worked/studied in New York, Baltimore, Chicago, Portland and Florence, Italy. Versed in literary realism and dark magic realism, I'm comfortable with a diversity of styles and voices, and I have had the honor of winning awards on both the writing and editing sides of publishing.

My stories, essays, and poetry have appeared in print and online at The Paris Review, The Missouri Review, McSweeney’s, DIAGRAM and more. My work has won prizes, scholarship and fellowships from Johns Hopkins, American University, Aspen Writers Foundation, VCCA and Whidbey Writers and has been nominated for the Pen/Hemingway, Pen Emerging Writers, The &NOW Award, Lorian Hemingway, and Pushcart.
