Once, in a fable...

As a 2014 graduate of NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, I've had the opportunity to take classes on a wide variety of subjects, ranging from the arc of the hero's journey in storytelling to theories of spirit possession. I've been cultivating this knowledge to guide and inspire me in my writing.

I write fiction, focusing mainly on paranormal/supernatural and fantasy, with some detours into horror and science fiction. I've written short stories as well as full-length novels, having completed my first novel when I was in the fifth grade and going so far as to self publish one during my junior year of high school. During my senior year of college, I was one of ten finalists in Simon & Schuster's Simon451 Student Novel Contest, where I turned in a completed 65K-word manuscript about a teen exorcism survivor searching for the priest that saved him.

Currently I'm the fantasy reviewer for the pop culture website Girls in Capes, but I pay the bills by working in social media for a digital publisher. At nights, I still write – at the moment my main focus is polishing the same manuscript from the S&S contest.
