“When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillar spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings.” ―Dean Jackson

I have been writing since a young age. I consider writing a mysterious, almost sacred life work. I make creative, academic, and technical pieces. My work is opening into experimental, hybrid, and found forms. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Master of Arts in English. My writing is published and is pending publication in various journals. I was awarded two fellowships with National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).


Some kinds of writing that I do includes:

  • experimental and hybrid poetry and verse
  • grant proposals for the arts, humanities and non-profit organizations
  • artists statements, biographies, and curatorial descriptions
  • analytic writing in the humanities and social sciences
  • collaborative technical communication with SMEs
  • academic writing
  • book reviews
