I started this webpage in 2009 to track my mission to write professionally in New York City.

I wrote my first book in third grade. I remember lying on my wooden bedroom floor, amongst my known white noise of a house of seven people, scribbling in grey-lead on a stack of stapled together, ripped out notebook pages. The name of the book was One Too Many Monsters.

My life has been built on spiritual understandings that I was born recalling. I’m not religious. I don’t believe in religion. This is somewhat a foundation of what I actually think I know.

I have a few degrees and have worked some fancy jobs. None of it overrides my inherent understanding of what life means and the empathy that overcomes me daily.

I currently live, write and love in midtown Manhattan with my two dogs.

Love to you, yours and ours. That’s all I have so far.
