I write essays, articles, and fiction. I grew up in sub-Saharan Africa and am still deeply inspired by the landscapes and cultures I explored there. My writing has appeared in BuzzFeed; Brain, Child; Cargo Literary; The Huffington Post; The Washington Post; Skirt Magazine; The Foreign Service Journal and several anthologies. I am an RPCV (Nepal, 1992-94) and I've also called Tirana, Albania and Kyiv, Ukraine home. At least for the moment I live and work in Washington, DC.
