A BIT ABOUT MY WRITING

I am a graduate of the Mile High MFA at Regis University where I studied non-fiction writing under the direction of David Lazar, Kathryn Winograd, Chip Livingston, and Sophfronia Scott.

I have been published in Barren Creative Nonfiction Magazine, Axon Creative Explorations, 5x5, and more. Read them below.
