I'm a writer based in Los Angeles. My debut story collection BAD THOUGHTS was released on July 12th, 2022 with Vintage Books. 

It's a New York Times Editors' Choice Pick, and was featured in The Cut, NYLON, Harper's Bazaar, BOMB, Document Journal, The Creative Independent and elsewhere. In the lead up to the book's release, I collaborated with director Brandon Tauszik on a series of short film book trailers (watch here). I'm currently working on a forthcoming novel, out with Knopf.

 

From 2014-2016 I collaborated with artist, Andrea Nakhla on an art and fiction book series called "Future You," featured in Urban Outfitters, Cool Hunting and elsewhere. Our animated short “The Trick” was a finalist at the GLAS Animated Film Festival and Splice Film Festival. In 2019, my story, “The Intruder” was shortlisted for the CBC Short Story Prize. That summer, I attended the Banff Centre for the Arts writing residency. In 2020, I received a literary grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.

Previously, I was an editorial director and community manager for brands such as Etsy, Society6, Gap Inc and Athleta. For nearly a decade, I advocated for the growth, well-being and recognition of artists from all disciplines.
