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 website of smart, funny critiques of pop culture. Previously I served as the managing editor and fiction editor of the noted 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.
