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 enjoy exploring hybrid forms and hermit crab essays, especially when writing about my grief and the death of my father. Many of my essays are accompanied by illustrations.
I have been published in Barren Creative Nonfiction Magazine, Axon Creative Explorations, 5x5, and more. Read them below.
