I have traveled to more than 20 countries across five continents and I’m determined to hit all seven within the next few years. I am based in Washington, D.C.
In addition to my live storytelling with Story District, Mortified, and other regional showcases, I have co-written and co-produced burlesque cabaret shows.
I graduated with honors in literature and history from Mount Holyoke College, the first college for women in the United States. I received my MA in American government from Georgetown University.
When I’m not writing or traveling, I’m doing yoga, binging true crime podcasts and British period dramas, and keeping myself constantly caffeinated.
