About Me

I write stories, essays, poems, reviews and copy. I love a well-written story that wraps its hooks around my teeth and yanks. I also love pieces full of (or void of) language, riddled fragments, lean-cut words to choke on. Let's be here together.

Why do you write?

Fuel: coffee, blobs, and smogless skies. I write to punish myself.

Any favorite authors? Books?
