I’m a writer and marketer living in the beautiful corner of New York City known as Sunnyside, Queens. During the day, I think about B2B marketing and how to create connections between business professionals. In my free time, I do a lot of daydreaming, reading, TV-watching, and writing.
While earning my degree in creative writing from Northwestern University, I had some awesome opportunities to earn editing chops. I worked the slush pile as an intern with Andrea Hurst and Associates and Folio Literary agencies, and I served as developmental editor at Booktrope and Pink Fish Press to help bring some amazing novels into this world.
In 2017, I was featured as an Emerging Writer in the Boundless Tales Series, and Newtown Literary nominated my short story “Gossip” for a Pushcart Prize in 2018 (read it here). I’m always working on a novel!
My short stories tend to cross Flannery O’Connor and Lorrie Moore; my longer works are more along the realism lines of Elizabeth Berg; my reading tastes are broad, and I’ll appreciate anything that has a little romance and is trying to be authentic fiction.
