I am an early career educator, writer, and editor. For the past three years I’ve taught Freshman Composition at Rutgers University-Camden while completing my MFA in Creative Writing under the tutelage of Paul Lisicky. My fiction is forthcoming in PLEIADES.

I have significant informal experience editing academic work, and I would love to grow my portfolio. I’ve copy- and content-edited graduate manuscripts on art history/digital humanities, comparative literature, and applied mathematics. Please reach out if you’d like a second pair of eyes on your work.

    I’ve recently become curious about the history of the writing workshop and its effect on American literary culture. I’m working to produce scholarship and/or creative nonfiction on this topic, and I would love to connect with scholars interested in the same.
