Writer / Editor
With a sense for effective communication and sensibility for dreamy poetics, writing has been my means for understanding the human experience for as long as I can remember. My wonder for words took me to the University of San Francisco, where I earned an MFA in Creative Writing in 2014. From academic prose to surreal verse, I offer content and editing by request and on speculation.
Credentialed in English, Spanish, and Social Studies, I have five years of classroom experience teaching writing, literature, and history to secondary students. Currently, I offer private tutoring across the curriculum and English language instruction to learners of all ages. I also coach writers through the undergraduate and graduate admissions process, as they distill themselves and their goals into essay form.
Growing up, where do you want to go? was always a more magnetic question than what do you want to do? Glimmering with the golden architecture in Versaille, blowing bubbles with humpback calves in Tonga, sailing to the shores of epic Ithaca, I'm now lucky enough to hold these dreams as memories. Awestruck by human innovation and untouched nature alike, I seek inspiration in writing and learning at the altar of adventure.
