About

I’m not famous for anything but I love reading across all genres and sharing my journey.

I’m currently working on my MFA, am an agented-writer with big dreams, am excessively well-traveled (think: Papua New Guinea and beyond), but severely lacking in other departments.

I enjoy freediving, beach bar hopping, and pretty much anything involving food. Currently in the Caribbean but have also lived in Russia, Croatia, Hawaii, and between the pages of a thousand books.

Better in water than on land.
