My writing has appeared in WBUR’s Cognoscenti, Dig Boston, Scout Somerville, Content Standard, STACK, and Spare Change News. As a journalist I’ve covered topics like homelessness, local politics, transportation, Latino and immigration issues, and music.

I also have a short story published in Issue 10 of Imitation Fruit, an essay in the Spring 2012 Issue of Solstice Magazine, and another essay in Issue 1, Volume 3 of Defunct (published by Iowa University). As a collection, these three pieces were a prizewinner in the Eighth Annual Kingston-Mann Student Research Awards. I received my MFA in Creative Non-Fiction from Pine Manor College’s Solstice Creative Writing Program.
