Beach mom. Chef’s spouse. Literature MA. These dimensions of my life—beach, food, literature—inform my essays and lyric prose.

I write on random topics and themes. I can’t keep to a singular/signature voice, style, or maintain a so-called “author’s brand” (intentionally, at least). My whole being detests it, this imperative to come out as a coherent character, a predictable personality, a writer whose body of work is neat and shiny like a carefully curated folio. It probably doesn’t serve me well as a writer to be so devoted to variety, multiplicity, ambiguity, and open-endedness. So kindly expect a merry miscellany when you go through my work here on Medium.
