Writing, design, and teaching form the fundamental basis of my life. I graduated from Willamette University with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and English and promptly decided that I didn’t want to actually make money. I  applied to Emerson College’s MFA program for Writing and Publishing and graduated in May of 2011 with my degree, having spent an almost equal amount of time writing, reading, and typesetting the Redivider: Journal of Literature and Art.

Now, I spend my days working at O’Reilly Media as a technical illustrator and my nights writing, editing, teaching at the Bureau of Fearless Ideas, running Mneme Press, crafting, and working on freelance design gigs, as well as helping other authors and fledgling presses get their work to market. I have had stories published in several online journals including Far Off Places, and I have had my work dramatized in multiple venues, including NPR.
