I was born in Massachusetts, U.S.A. I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area when I was two years old, and I have lived here ever since.

I have long harbored an interest in writing. For three years I  was a reporter for the Tri-City Voice local newspaper. I have attended the San Francisco Writer’s Conference for two years (2008-2009). I published my very first novel  in August 2013, and I am now working on spreading the word.  It has been an incredible experience so far.

I have a deep passion when it comes to working in the community.  I have worked in several local political campaigns, worked as an intern in a California State Assemblymember’s office, volunteered at an election poll, and tried to raise awareness by participating in the annual National Alzheimer’s Memory Walk.

Along with these avid interests, I enjoy singing, acting, and generally being involved in the Performing Arts. I also love playing sports, such as tennis and long distance running.
