WHO I AM
A New England native born and raised in Providence, RI, I have also lived in San Diego, CA, and Portland, OR, and visited all of the lower 48 states. Following a successful career managing community organizations focused on social service and social justice, in 2016, I joined Stony Brook University as a candidate for an MFA in creative writing. Since completing the degree, I have become a museum administrator and relocated to greater Boston.
