About Me

Words best express who I am. They are both portable and permanent. I currently live in New York City - during the day I dissect the law, every other moment, I read or write.


My work is centered on topics related to human rights and gender equality, culture, wellness, and social commentary. I aspire to give a voice to those who can't always speak for themselves. All views are strictly my own.


I strategize. I edit. I write. I turn ideas into compelling stories. Feel free to browse and contact me for collaborations, commissions or to learn more.
