She has lived in Iceland and Germany, and adventured through 26 countries along the way. Her work has appeared in Cosmic Roots & Eldritch Shores, Shimmer, Flash Fiction Magazine, and Liquid Imagination. She is pursuing her MFA in fiction and holds a BA in Literary Arts and German Studies from Brown University.
