My creative work aims to explore the physical, emotional, and psychological connections people have with the natural world. My poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and photography has been published in over a dozen journals and a couple anthologies. “Hollowed Onions” was nominated for the 2016 Write Well Award (Silver Pen Writers), with the story available in the 2016 issue of The Gateway Review.
Two of my erasure poems will be included in the Erase the Patriarchy anthology from University of Hell Press, available in August 2020.
Currently, I serve as a prose reader for Slippery Elm Literary Journal and loved working as a former prose editor. I completed a master’s degree in rhetoric and writing in 2019.
I try to be outside as often as I write. If I’m not listening to music while writing, ASMR videos are my go-to for relaxation and staying in the writing zone. I love days at the beach and hiking (and will always scream at the large bugs). I lived in Ohio for most of my life but currently reside in Queensland, Australia.
