I’ve always sought to navigate the world through words, and through themes of place, race, and social justice.

On the creative side, I explore these issues through speculative fiction and contemporary literature. I’m a 2017 VONA/Voices alumna, as well as an associate editor at PodCastle.

I’m also a journalist and communications professional with expertise in urban planning and public health. I’m available for freelance writing, editing, and strategic communications opportunities. If you are interested in working with me in this capacity, please see my journalism/communications portfolio and LinkedIn page.
