I’m currently an MFA candidate at UCR, pursuing a degree in Creative Writing. Before I went back to school, I spent 8 years working in the travel industry in Chicago, New York, and Paris. I’ve worked as a travel consultant, a hostel intern, a travel journalist, and a marketing manager; I’ve planned and led press trips throughout Europe. Once I also helped to lead a photography tour through Ireland (and by 'helped to lead a photography tour' I mostly mean 'helped to lead people towards bread pudding and Guinness').

I’m the co-founder of the TalesOnRail Artist in Residence program at Rail Europe.

Currently I’m working at an art museum in Los Angeles and as a part-time assistant to my two cats, Mulder and Scully.

I spend a lot of time hanging out in my clawfoot bathtub.
