I am a twenty-something-year-old writer based in the great Los Angeles area. At the moment, I’m interested in interdisciplinary art practices, magical realism, the urgency of living in this era we call the Anthropocene, and questions around cultural identity. When I’m not writing, you can find me voraciously seeking out new books, films, and television shows.

In 2017, I graduated summa cum laude from the Santa Fe University of Art and Design, with a degree in creative writing in the poetry and nonfiction tracks. As part of my senior thesis, I published my first writing collection, titled In The Nucleus.

As of spring 2020, I am an MFA candidate at the California Institute of the Arts in the Creative Writing program. My current projects include a series of ecological short stories and a novella about the Chisos Mountains of West Texas.

I am passionate about publishing, elevating underrepresented voices, interdisciplinary art practices, literature, transparency, education, and empowering youth and persons in underprivileged positions. I work from a place of curiosity; I love learning new skills and opportunities for growth.
