I am a writer from Los Angeles, CA. I received my MFA in Creative Writing from Mount St. Mary's University, and my debut novel South of Sepharad was published by History Through Fiction on February 20, 2024.
My novella, Dreams of an American Exile, won 1888 Center's Plaza Literary Prize and I recently completed a short story collection that was shortlisted for the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction.
My fiction has appeared in The Rush, The GroundUp, Tabula Rasa Review and other publications.
I work full-time at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, where I write about complex and groundbreaking medical procedures.
