I'm a writer, movie-cryer and bona fide hype queen® who's laid my roots all over Asia but currently call Providence, Rhode Island my home. I primarily traverse in bite-sized work: flash, short fiction and poetry.

I studied anthropology at Brown University with a literary arts senior thesis, then spent many years as a sexual health and pleasure educator/advocate (I give great sex toy recommendations). Currently working in anti-discrimination law.

What else? I love aquariums, the Seattle Seahawks, and feeding on the energy of terrified introverts. One of my biggest regrets is not being the first to register @garbagedick as my Twitter handle. I have a doctor's note confirming that I literally never learned to walk properly.

I want to make foreign things familiar and familiar things new; push your hand into your own face.

Peep me on that social media:
