I have BA in English literature from UC Berkeley and an MFA in fiction from Brooklyn College. My stories, essays, poems, photographs, and illustrations have appeared in numerous print and online publications--Elephant Journal, Huffington Post, The Sun Magazine, Vela, New World Writing, Pology, Matador, Swink, and Prick of the Spindle, to name a few. My work has been anthologized in The Best Online Science Fiction and Fantasy; Battle Runes: Writings on War; and The Best Women’s Travel Writing 2009. And did you see the part above about my forthcoming novel? More details coming soon!
In my professional life, I’ve been the news editor for Ethical Traveler, the director of the Glimpse Graduate Program in Travel Journalism at MatadorU, Communications Fellow at Teachers & Writers Collaborative, and, for a brief but glorious period, an extra in Bollywood (you know you’ve made it when someone else gets paid to wipe off your lip sweat). As a filmmaker, I’ve been on assignment in Guatemala, Belize, and Mongolia for TripFilms.com and LonelyPlanetTV. I play guitar and piano and occasionally write and perform songs for both. You can currently find me teaching a self-paced, online video class on pet portraits at Skillshare, to which you all are cordially invited!
My writing is represented by the wonderful Marly Rusoff of the Marly Rusoff Literary Agency.
