About Me

I am a writer living in Los Angeles. I grew up in Central Illinois and earned a bachelor’s degree in creative writing at the University of Illinois in 2006, followed by a master’s in creative writing at Cal State Northridge in 2010. I currently work for a nonprofit helping publish literature for drug addicts trying to get and stay clean. I also blog for Blogging.LA, teach English Composition, and have written occasional book reviews for The Front Table web magazine.
