Who am I?
I'm an author, community organizer, and creative problem solver. For the past ten years, I have managed operations and communications in small businesses, non-profits, government agencies, and startups.
I love to support and enhance spaces where creative people can be productive, communicate effectively, and reach their goals. I love community and shared spaces so much, that is what my first novel, It Will Set You Free, is about.
Sounds cool! What else?
I earned my BA in English at the University of Florida with minors in Linguistics, Psychology, and Entrepreneurship and my MFA in Creative Writing at The New School. I'm the Director of Operations and Company Culture at Insider Inc, the Donor Management Team Leader for the Harry Potter Alliance and a member of the the NYDA (its New York City chapter), a member of the Manhattan Gaels Gaelic football team, and a member of the Liberty Gaels camogie club.
Nice! Is that all?
Nope! I'm also the founder and host of the Renegade Reading Series, an activist, and an independent Harry Potter scholar. I live in Brooklyn in an awesome apartment with my awesome partner and two super-awesome kitties, Bubble and Squeak. I love whiskey, wine, craft beer, books, food, wildlife, and travel. If you come to my home, I will feed you.
