In short

  • Born and raised in Elmhurst, Illinois, just 20 miles outside of Chicago, I spent a lot of time with my nose in a book or notebook. I thrived in my English classes (math, not so much). I love watching movies and watching a story unfold. I wrote my first "screenplay" at 9 years old when my dad brought home Pink Floyd's The Wall and I spent hours trying to write my own movie based on the songs. I love music and doggies.

  • 3 live readings of short stories onstage in 2013; completed NaNoWriMo 2012 and Camp NaNoWriMo 2013
