I'm not sure what else people want to know about me, so I suppose I'll just ramble on for a while!

I graduated from Syracuse University way back in 2010. For a bit of time, I taught advanced English to refugees seeking American citizenship. I also wrote for a few newspapers in New York before moving halfway across the country and officially delving into the art of novel writing.

All of my stories contain countless reflections of real life experiences. I'm simply incapable of writing something that isn't immensely close to my heart. So, be prepared to *feel something* if you decide to read my work!

I write to change lives, not to pass the time.
