I am a writer, teacher, and postulant living in North Carolina.

In my writing, I explore the intersections of faith, language, and culture. I believe that research is a form of love and that fiction can tell the truth. You can read my work in Image, The Millions, Washington Post, The Other Journal, Cresset, Christianity Today, River Teeth, Relief, Christian Century, and elsewhere.

As a teacher, I’ve worked in cross-cultural and and honors-level academics and student development. I taught ESL for two years in Southeast Asia before returning stateside to teach in California, Arkansas, Washington, and Indiana. Most recently, I taught creative writing, intercultural communication, and interdisciplinary honors courses at a Christian college in the midwest.

Being a postulant means that I’m on track to become ordained in the Episcopal church. As a part of that process, I’m studying now at Duke Divinity School. I hope that someday soon I can share the Eucharist with you.
