I’m a story teller, curriculum writer, and educator living in the San Francisco Bay Area. My short stories have appeared in Drunken Boat, TAYO Literary Magazine, Lunch Ticket, The Copperfield Review, and others. I’ve also written several articles and essays for publications including Weird Sister, Teaching Tolerance, and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. I was a VONA/Voices fellow, finalist for the 2015 Hurston/Wright Founding Members Award for College Writers, and an Andrea Davis Pinkney Chapter Book Scholarship Winner. I earned an MFA in Creative Writing at Mills College and teach English at Diablo Valley College. Currently, I’m working on a young adult novel and a collection of short stories. I am also co-editing an anthology of dystopian short stories by writers of color with Achy Obejas.
