I’m a writer, editor, and educator in Miami. I started writing in high school and had a byline in The New York Times before I was of age to (legally) drink. I’ve been blessed to write essays and reported stories for the nation’s biggest publications – including The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Atlantic and more. I’ve taught writing to college students, elementary students, and incarcerated adults. My fiction and non-fiction writing has been awarded prizes by Cornell University, The University of Miami, Tin House, The Susquehanna Review, The Michener Foundation, The Florida Society of News Editors, The Florida Press Club, and The Society of Professional Journalists. I’m currently completing my first novel and occasionally procrastinating by writing feature-length screenplays. I am represented by Danielle Bukowski of Sterling Lord Literistic.
