I’m optimistic. I think, in general, if we stay vigilant and honest, things are going to be okay. That’s where I like to start.

I grew up in the middle of Pennsylvania, which I very recently realized people might consider more Midwest than Northeast. That befuddled me for a few days, but ultimately makes a lot of sense.

For the past decade, I’ve built a life in New York City, leaning into the slash. First it was actor slash dancer slash singer slash cater-waiter. Then actor slash server, slash bartender, slash consultant in a pyramid scheme, slash fitness instructor. I made my way through those years and came out on the other side with some good stories so I put them on the page.

I’ve recently become a mother, and couldn’t be more mystified by it. The clichés are real. It’s beautiful and terrifying all in the same moment and I’m excited to explore more of these contradictions in my writing.

Would love to learn more about you. Drop me a line.
