I am a queer poet and writer from South Jersey. When I am not writing, reading, or writing about reading, I enjoy cooking and hiking with my Goldendoodle, Angel. I grew up in South Jersey reading, writing, and traveling the country with my family. I first started writing poetry during my sophomore year of high school.
I graduated from Montclair State University magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in English with a concentration in Creative Writing and a minor in Public and Professional Writing.
I studied abroad in the spring of 2018 with Semester at Sea. On my voyage, I traveled to 12 countries across Asia, Africa, and Europe in the span of 4 months. I also traveled to Iceland for a week with Global Treks and Adventures, which gave me the chance to write about the wildlife along the southern coast for a travel guide.
I am currently an Associate Publicist at Smith Publicity, where I work with authors and publishers on books of all genres. I am also a published poet and am in the process of writing my first poetry collection.
Karamo Brown Podcast
In the summer of 2019, Karamo Brown from Queer Eye invited me to be on his podcast to discuss sexuality and acceptance and the use of language to degrade groups of people.
Iceland Summer 2019
During my week exploring Iceland with Global Treks and Adventures, I took short videos of all of my adventures. Here is a supercut of those clips.

Study Abroad Instagram
I ran Montclair State University's study abroad Instagram from spring 2019 to summer 2020. I coordinated student takeovers, created posts and wrote captions. During my time managing the account, we more than doubled our follower count.
