Born and raised in New York City, I have always been fascinated by the written word. A voracious reader as a child, I soon began writing my own work, eventually turning to events in my own life for inspiration. I have been published in Stuyvesant Literary Magazine, Yale Daily News Magazine, Vita Bella Magazine, Superstition Review, and several anthologies. I have won multiple Gold and Silver Key Scholastic Art and Writing awards. I am currently a student at Yale University and have studied with Cynthia Zarin and David S. Kastan. I am also an actor, singer, and pianist.
