My work is a direct reflection of my life’s motto: find the beauty.
I began my career as a writer and have studied with incredible teachers in both Pittsburgh, PA and Oxford, U.K., including Ben Lerner, Jen Lee, CM Burroughs, Jane Yeh, and James Hawes. My work has been published in journals and anthologies both nationally and internationally, and I am thrilled to be represented by Soumeya Roberts of Hannigan Salky Getzler Literary Agency for my first novel.
In recent years, I’ve expanded my artistic voice to include photography, and am exploring this new art form by photographing the people, places, experiences, and things that inspire me.
Some other things:
I love: Spain, Los Angeles, Philadelphia's cobble stone, vegan foods, red wine, dark coffee, ballet, traveling, yoga, vintage clothes, a strong red lip, walkable cities, and my bike.
I studied English Writing, Economics, and Spanish language from the University of Pittsburgh. After leaving Pittsburgh in 2009, I moved to Oxford, U.K., where I studied Creative Writing at Oxford Brookes University, achieving a Master of Arts. From there, I moved back to Philadelphia, where I have lived (with regular visits to the west coast) since 2011. In 2017, I co-founded And We Evolve, a sustainable fashion business based in Philadelphia.
