About me

I'm a writer and teacher in Los Angeles. 

I spend my days reading, grading, running, mom-ing, and thinking of ways to make sad stuff funny. I also do some improv and climate activism, often simultaneously. I spend my nights watching Queer Eye while eating my fourth meal. 


I got my BA in Theater at University of Virginia. I'm an Assistant Professor of English at Otis College of Art & Design, where I also got my MFA (may that glorious graduate writing program rest in peace).


I'm currently querying my latest YA novel, a cli-fi romcom.
