About

East Coast born. West Coast raised.

In 2019, I lived in 10 different US cities for a month each, working on a personal writing project where I wrote an essay every day. 

I like to draw pictures and write stories about everything from Wonderbread to the perils of brushing an 8 month old’s teeth.
