I am an emerging writer who recently completed my certificate in fiction from UCLA Extension Writer's Program, as well as various fiction workshops run by Catapult and Sackett Street. I am a judge for the Scholastic Teen Writing Awards, and my short fiction can be found (or is forthcoming) in Breakwater Review, Pure Slush and Coil (the journal of Alternating Current Press). Originally from Los Angeles, I currently live in Manhattan.
