I write to translate. I write to entertain. I write to love language(s). I write to sabotage habit. I write to amplify your voice.
I’m interested in how people work together to get what they need. Sometimes that means urban planning, and sometimes it means the opposite: ways we fight what's been planned.
I studied Political Science at Middlebury College, worked as an Urban Fellow on the NYC mayor's speechwriting team, and spent 2.5 years doing marketing at Hailo (a ridesharing app) before moving to Baltimore in 2015 to start an MFA in poetry at Johns Hopkins.
I teach undergrads at Hopkins, facilitate writing workshops for middle and high schoolers (through Writers in Baltimore Schools) and serve as an Assistant Editor of The Hopkins Review.
