When I’m not peddling my literary wares or enjoying a cherished writing fellowship, I immerse myself in my job at GrubStreet where I help teens find the space to write and perform their narratives. Why teens? Because they’re awesome. Most of the time they have it figured out more than adults. If you give them some room and get out of the way, they’ll do the rest.

Seeing my work in print is fun, but I also enjoy podcasting and live storytelling, just to shake things up. My non-literary indulgences are bubble tea, quilting, and NCAA basketball.
