What I Do

I am a Practitioner-In-Residence in the English Department at the University of New Haven where I teach first-year writing courses.

Where I’ve Been

I received my B.A. in English Literature & Writing from the University of New Haven in 2013, and I received my M.F.A. in Creative & Professional Writing, with concentrations in fiction (emphasis on speculative genres) and writing for web audiences, from Western Connecticut State University in 2015. I am the former MFA Alumni Writers Cooperative President (@WCSU), and have previously served as a reader and panel chair for the alumni organization’s Housatonic Book Awards. I am a former web editor and social media manager for WCSU’s graduate publication, Poor Yorick: A journal of rediscovered objects, and I am currently on the journal’s advisory board. I have also served as the managing editor of Roundabout Press, a small independent publisher of fiction

My own short fiction has appeared in Akashic Books’ online noir series, Mondays are Murder. I have presented on panels at the College English Association Conference and UConn’s Conference on the Teaching of Writing. My work on women and appearance mods in video games will appear in Women and Video Game Modding, a peer-reviewed essay collection by McFarland Books, in 2019.

In addition to my academic, creative, and editorial work, I have been a freelance writer and social media consultant for over six years.
