More formally, I have BA from UC Berkeley and an MFA in fiction from Brooklyn College. My award-winning fiction, nonfiction, and graphic stories have appeared in Vela, Blip, Opium, The Sun Magazine (Reader's Write), The Best Women’s Travel Writing, Swink, Prick of the Spindle, Matador, and Pology, among others. Previously I was news editor for Ethical Traveler as well as the director of the Glimpse Graduate Program at MatadorU. I was nominated for Best New Poets 2009 and received an eight-month writing fellowship with Teachers & Writers Collaborative from 2008-2009. More recently I received an Elizabeth George Foundation grant for my novel-in-progress.
I've included a handful of links to published work on my Projects page. There's a slightly less conventional bio here.
I'm also the freakishly compulsive person behind the Should I Leash My Dog? flowchart, which was featured in a fantastic article on Notes from a Dog Walker and has been shared widely on Facebook and other places. For more info, click here.
My writing is represented by the wonderful Marly Rusoff of the Marly Rusoff Literary Agency.
