I write fiction that considers kinship with non-human animals, materiality, and image-text intersections. Currently, I’m a Distinguished Dissertator in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Creative Writing PhD program, where I serve as Coordinator of the College Writing and Research composition program and as a mentor to new Graduate Teaching Assistants. I’ve studied creative writing at the MFA program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the Clarion West Writers Workshop, and the Sewanee Writers’ Conference.
