About Me

I am a urban planning nerd who loves writing fiction. I write about exchange students, supermarkets, the suburbs, angsty teenagers, sibling rivalry, bad things that happen in convenience store parking lots, good things that happen on public transportation, alienation and love.

Why do you write?

I want to tell stories. Specifically, I want to tell one story, and I try over and over again to tell it and it doesn't come out quite right. If it ever does come out right, I don't know if I will feel happy or sad.

Any favorite authors? Books?

I have a rotating crew of favorite writers. Some of my recent favorites are: Grace Paley, Raymond Carver, Jennifer Egan, Joy Williams, Karen Russell, Alice Munroe, Nathan Englander, Mary Gaitskill, etc. I love a good short story.
