ABOUT ME

Based in Virginia, I have been a regular contributor of features and columns to the Durham Herald-Sun, Fifteen-501 magazine, and the Carrboro Free Press, and have published nationally in Commonweal magazine and Busted Halo.

I began publishing a small magazine of short fiction, FOLIO (thefolio.blogspot.com), in 2006 while studying for a BFA at SUNY Purchase College. I studied library science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and am now the Cataloging and Metadata Librarian at the College of William and Mary Law Library.
