I'm a writer, editor, teacher, and enthusiast. I write about lots of stuff including animals, television, film, and (ahem) myself. 

My work has been published in The Toast, Electric Literature's Okey Panky, Painted Bride Quarterly, and Bright Wall/Dark Room (where I'm also an associate editor), among other places.

I've taught writing and literature in college and high school classrooms, after school programs, senior centers, and correctional facilities.

I also work in communications and development for small and mid-sized nonprofits. 

I'm from the Bay Area; my adopted home city is Chicago; I had a brief but intense fling with Missoula, Montana; I currently live in Portland, Oregon; I'm obsessed with the BBC's Escape to the Country, and am ready for you to fund my relocation to rural UK, thanks very much in advance.
