About Me

What I Write

I’m a freelance writer that specializes in non-fiction pieces on culture, art, and travel. In 2012, I attended the Clarion West writer’s workshop—and it changed everything. I met my future wife, mentors, and fast friends. Together with two of my class-mates I edit Samovar, a quarterly, sister-publication of Strange Horizons, which publishes speculative fiction in translation.

Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

A new day job, a new city, the same struggle finding time. A plan in my back pocket to re-prioritise writing, and maybe this could help. I’d be happy with a page a day averaged out over the course of the write-a-thon.

Fundraising Goals

Pocket change, returned bottles, coins found on the roadside.
