About

Howdy!

I’m a software developer at Substantial and a PhD candidate in creative writing at the University of Cincinnati.

Over the years, I’ve taught courses in fiction, composition, and digital media studies. I’ve also helped edit magazines like American Short Fiction, co-founded an annual two-day music festival, written and directed short films, and even created the offbeat cultural NPR-affiliate radio segment “Into It.”

I was raised in Kansas and live in Seattle.
