Nice to meet you!
I began my professional writing career in 2001 as a creative voice for Beach Beat Magazine, headquartered in Salisbury, MA. Before that I wrote extensively as a child beginning and through my teens into young adulthood.
Past literary conferences include the New Hampshire Writer's Project, the New England Young Writers' Conference at the Bread Loaf Campus of Middlebury College, and had the good fortune to study under NYT-bestselling author Meredith Hall, NEA-recipient Mekeel McBride, and Pulitzer Prize-winner Charles Simic.
This past June I graduated from Harvard University with an ALM Master's Degree in Creative Writing & Literature where my original memoir/novella "Whiplash" served as the central literary work for my thesis: "Mind of Mirrors: Inner Speech as Literary Voice and its Power in Narrative Identity."
My current focus in on voice with regard to narrative-making and personal storytelling, essay, and creative nonficton. As a queer, disabled, and neurodivergent creative, I am curious about all genres and modes of self-expression including visual art, performance, music, and of course, writing.
I've been in hundreds of workshops over the years and am looking for a weekly circle of writers to swap work, offer crit, and maintain both accountability and passion. Currently I'm working on various projects and pieces including poetry, micro-fiction, narrative medicine, essay, and a nonfiction course to help teach artists how to enter the cryptocurrency space.
