I'm a MFA student in The University of Michigan's Helen Zell Writers' Program.

I wrote and edited for The University of Akron student newspaper, The Buchtelite, for a year-and-a-half, and wrote briefly for an Akron arts and life magazine called The Devil Strip.

My fiction and poetry has appeared in the Ashbelt and Brainchild Magazine.
