I'm pleased to announce that one of my short stories, "The Africans," has been published by West Branch Wired, the online version of West Branch, Bucknell University's literary journal. The full text of the story can be read here.
"The Africans" is one of seven stories in my debut collection, Foreigner, which I hope to complete in the coming year.

I'm at work on my first book, a collection of linked short stories that follows a community of expatriates living on the southern coast of Spain.
I care about stuff. Like curing type 1 diabetes. And marriage equality. And rights for immigrants. And public radio. And espanol. And Frank O'Hara and Jennifer Egan and Federico Garcia Lorca and Tony Kushner. You know, cool stuff.
I make postcards that are also stories.
Sometimes I read stories and poems out loud.
Sometimes I go to conferences.
You can find my short stories, essays, poems and flash fictio in a variety of places in print and online. If you Google really hard, you might find the two short radio pieces I produced on a badass NPR affiliate in San Francisco.
