I launched this site in June of 2021 and wrote a story every week for the rest of the year. Then I commissioned artists I know and love to illustrate those stories, and collected it all in a book called People With Problems, available for purchase here!

This do-it-ourselves book project was inspired by filmmaker Mark Duplass’s SXSW keynote speech, “The Cavalry Isn’t Coming.” If you’re a creative in any field, it’s an enlightening and empowering watch.
Four of last year’s stories were written for the 2021 NYC Midnight Flash Fiction Challenge, in which I won 2nd place.
My first novel, I Hear You Watching, is based on inside understanding of hearing voices and paranoia. It will be published summer of 2023.
I have a B.A. In English (Creative Writing) from University of Southern California, where I studied under Marianne Wiggins and T.C. Boyle.
Where human feet have never trod– Sun Ra
Where human eyes have never seen
I’ll build a world of abstract dreams
And wait for you
