Secular memoir written for healing; sermons written to witness the infinite mercy of God. 

I am a Pushcart Prize nominated essayist and graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, purveyor of aggressive Russian hospitality, devotee of thank you notes, silence and dogs and very slow reader of books. Snipped to bits by a narcissistic mother, patched back together by a beneficent father, I record lucid observations and apply a little faulty reasoning.

My work has appeared in The Sarah Lawrence Review, Red Rock Review, When One Door Closes, Thought Catalog, The Arizona Literary Magazine, Minerva Rising and the Yale Divinity School Letters Journal. My poem “Presence” placed 3rd in the 2002 Tucson Poetry Festival Statewide Contest judged by Pulitzer Prize winner, Gary Snyder. My essay, “Please Eat the Lunch When I’m Dead” was given the Editor’s Best Pick Discover Award for excellent writing on WordPress.

Currently, I am a Master of Divinity candidate at Yale Divinity School where I serve as Non-fiction Editor for Yale Divinity School’s Letters Journal and an intern to the U.N. for the Episcopal Church Center's Office of Global Partnerships.

Your help with expenses will enable me spend more time reading, studying and writing and reaching others with hope and healing.

You have kept count of my tossings;
Put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?

                      -Psalm 56:8

Peace and JOY!
