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 have the patience to go into head shrinking. Instead, 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.
I started my day job career O’Reilly Media as the lead technical illustrator for a decade before moving over to working in recruiting for Quantum Computers. By night I continue to write, edit, teach at various venues and schools, craft, and work on freelance design gigs, as well as helping other authors and fledgling presses get their work to market. I have had short stories, poems, and essays published in several online journals including Far Off Places, and I have had my work dramatized in multiple venues, including NPR while my longer work has been both traditionally and independently published.
