About me

I am a San Francisco-based writer of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. Founder of WordSpaceStudios, a literary center that serves writers by offering residencies and workshops, I also serve as Editor-in-Chief of Chariot Press Literary Journal. I hold an MA in English and an MFA in Fiction from San Francisco State University. My work has been published and performed in various publications and literary events such as Entrope Mag, The Blue Nib Review, Bang Out, Litquake, Listen to Your Mother, Qu Literary, to name a few. My short stories have also been anthologized and received honorary mention and been finalists with Glimmer Train. I am currently working on “Necessities and Desires,” a collection of short stories, as well as a novel spanning four generations and two countries.
