About Me

photo by Craig Zirpolo

Coming from a family of readers, I discovered the influence of words relatively early and fell in love with writing.

My writing has been published internationally, appearing in various journals, magazines, and chapbooks. To read these pieces, look at my Published Works page.

In 2014, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.A. in English and a minor in Creative Writing. In 2015, I earned my Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL/TESOL) certification. Though I have held a variety of jobs, I currently teach English in Concepción, Chile.

When I’m not teaching or writing, I spend my time hiking, exploring  new places, and reading books of all kinds. To see what books I recommend, look at my goodreads page.
