I write stories. My work has appeared in Oracle Fine Arts Review, West Branch Wired, California Northern, Fourteen Hills, and Flatmancrooked, as well as selected anthologies. I’m a 2012 graduate of UC Davis’ masters in creative writing program and currently contribute to Washington Square, San Jose State University’s alumni magazine. In 2013 I co-founded Play On Words, San Jose's collaborative literary performance series. I’ve received scholarships to attend the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference, the Tomales Bay Writer’s Workshops and the Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference. I’m at work on a novel set in Spain. My daughter may someday be my president.
