I love telling stories and creating unforgettable moments.
I'm a writer, editor, and producer based in Chicago. During the day I dream up creative content and social strategy including video, photo, and editorial campaigns for the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law.
I'm also the founder and editor of HEAUXS, a pop culture website focused on smart, funny reads of stupid things. Previously I served as the managing editor and fiction editor of the literary journal TriQuarterly.
My fiction and nonfiction have been published in places like McSweeney's, TriQuarterly, PANK, and Role Reboot. I love connecting with audiences and have appeared as a storyteller in major venues including Steppenwolf Theater and City Winery. My one woman show MOTHER OF THE YEAR! debuted and returned to sold out crowds.
I received a Master of Arts in Creative Writing from Northwestern University and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Oregon, where I also taught creative writing, argumentative writing, and humanities courses.
