I was born in North County, San Diego, but spent my childhood in Bishop, California. I have published poems in The Bark and The Peregrine and a short story in Harvard’s Charles River Review. A graduate of Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania, I studied Art History and French and lived and studied as an undergraduate for six months in Dijon, France and six months in London, England. At the moment I am preoccupied with finishing a short story collection set in the Owens Valley. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area where I raise funds for conservation and preservation of natural resources.
