Would you like to tell us anything about yourself? (Optional)

Although I am drawn to CNF essay writing of the more personal nature, I also struggle with not wanting to overshare. It's a judgmental world out there.

Would you like to tell us anything about your project? (Optional)

My current project is an essay about growing up in NYC with my older brother, and then losing him to drugs, and how I reconciled that experience.


I am a native New Yorker. I have an MFA in Creative Nonfiction, and I teach Composition at NOVA's Annandale Campus. I have a 1 year old and a 3 year old. Between family life and my career, it's a challenge to get any writing done from Sept - May.
