I am a writer and actress living in the greater NYC area.


After 5+ years in print production, I recently left the New York publishing industry to pursue my MFA in Creative Writing at Stony Brook Southampton. Currently, I work as a freelance editor, teach undergraduate writing at Stony Brook University, and I am also an editorial assistant with The Southampton Review. My writing has appeared or
is forthcoming in Sugar House Review, Gamut, Sequestrum, Typehouse Literary Magazine, Right Hand Pointing, and The 2River View, among others.


As an actress, I have performed at various theaters and venues across the northeast including Carnegie Hall, The Bushnell, The Producer's Club, The Commonwealth Shakespeare Company, and Luna Stage. Full résumé available here.
