Hello! I’m a writer, hobby photographer, and book club enthusiast based in Madison, Wisconsin.

I have an MFA in Fiction from University of California, Riverside and a BA in English Literature from University of Wisconsin, Madison. I enjoy small towns, quiet moments and stories that vibrate with tension. I am currently at work on a debut novel. My stories and poems have been featured in Midwestern GothicBlack Heart Review, and Atticus Review.
