Brooklyn, NY  – “After studying creative writing and dance at a magnet school in Rochester, New York, I went on to study (again) creative writing and dance at Brown University. After graduating, I served two years as an AmeriCorps member in North Carolina, developing literacy programs for the Durham Public Schools. I put myself through NYU\’s graduate school by working in group homes, pediatric hospitals, and juvenile detention centers as a creative writing teacher. Currently, I work as a adjunct writing instructor and a yoga instructor.
       In 2008, I won the Rick Rofihe award for short fiction and was published in Open City. In 2009, I was published in One Story, and was selected as a Brooklyn Book Festival 2010 author. I am at work on a collection of short stories and a novel. Meditation and yoga are an integral part of my creative process.”
