I'm a writer, editor and barista based in Portland, Oregon. 

In 2013, I fled my Northern California roots and moved to "the big city" of Portland, Oregon to study English Lit & Creative Writing at Portland State University. I worked in various cafes around the city, making friends and finding creative community over sleepy eyes and wobbly latte art. 

I joined a creative writing community, attended weekly workshops for several years, and then started facilitating my own group - Write to Publish. 

Nine years later, and Portland feels like my second home. 

I currently volunteer as an editor with Typehouse Literary, a writer-run, print and digital lit-mag I've been working with since 2016.

My work can be found in lit-mags like JMWW and Little Fictions | Big Truths, as well as zines like Coffee People and pubs like World Literature Today. I would like to gather my essays and small fictions into a collection and have someone help me print and distribute that collection someday. I drink italianos and live with my cat Binx.
