I'm a writer and editor with a background in art and design education and a deep interest in culture and travel. I currently work at the Rhode Island School of Design. Prior to RISD, I taught English and creative writing at Virginia Commonwealth University (and its branch campus in Doha, Qatar). I have worked as a writer for VCUQatar, Into the Gloss and the Cambridge-based startup, Superpedestrian.

I'm based in Providence, Rhode Island. I was born and raised in New Jersey and have called Charleston, Richmond, Austin and Doha home.
