My short fiction and nonfiction have appeared in VICE LGBTQ, Calyx Journal, the NonBinary Review, Blood+Milk, and several other print and online publications. I hold an MFA in fiction from San Francisco State University. While at SFSU, I was a Student Artist-in-Residence at Recology (aka: the San Francisco Dump), for which I created a gallery show of visual and text-based artwork constructed from recycled and repurposed items brought to the dump's public disposal area. As a freelance writer, I have written on an eclectic range of topics including LGBTQ issues, sexuality, finance, travel, health, Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Holocaust survivors, and the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository. I am a fellow of the BookEnds program, a year-long novel finishing workshop run by novelists Meg Wolizter and Susie Merrell, and an alumna of the Squaw Valley Community of Writers, LitCamp, and Writers @ Work, and a former resident of the Mill House Residency in Bend, Oregon. Most recently, I was awarded a one-month residency at Storyknife in Homer, Alaska. I live with my family in the San Francisco Bay Area and volunteer with the National Park Service's Mounted Patrol in the Marin Headlands.
