About Me

“Curiouser and curiouser!” cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English). “Now I’m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!” – Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

I am a curious person, and I find the world to be a curious place. My inspiration comes from learning new things, discovering new places, and meeting new people, and I make sense of it all by writing it down.

I have an M.A. in Writing from Johns Hopkins University, and my articles and essays have appeared in publications including Baltimore magazine, BmoreArt, Full Grown People, National Parks Traveler, Outside In Literary & Travel Magazine, Seltzer, Neutrons Protons, 20 Something Magazine, and Sauce Magazine. I currently serve as an editor for The Baltimore Review, and I work as a public relations and social media supervisor at an award-winning agency. I am also a volunteer instructor for Writers in Baltimore Schools, teaching creative writing workshops for students at a Baltimore City public school.

I live in Baltimore, and I love learning about everything weird and wonderful that makes Charm City great. When I’m not writing, I spend my free time practicing yoga, rock climbing, sailing, playing the piano, walking my two rescue dogs, and reading to keep up with my book-buying habit.
