I grew up on Harriet the Spy and Louisa May Alcott and the music of Motown and Man of La Mancha. I have always had a love for language and for music. Although I graduated with degrees in French, English, and Creative Writing, I believe the most formative education I ever received was learning about music at my college radio station. I believe that writing is as important as taking a walk. I think it's important to create and to think about art in all forms.


Celtic piano, David Halberstram's books, a good hike, a strong cup of coffee.
