A native Texas, I've taken Spanish classes since I was 5 years old. I finally achieved fluency after studying in Bolivia for six months, where I published a chapbook of poetry in Spanish with the help of an incredible Bolivian poet.
I am a writer, performer, and educator. I am currently in my final year of an MFA program in Poetry, and was just selected as the Katherine Anne Porter Writer-In-Residence. I also love big dogs, breakfast tacos, and pickup basketball games.
