Hi there! Thanks for visiting my site and for your interest in my writing. In case you don't know much about me, here's a (very) short bio. I have a BA in Communications from the University of Pennsylvania and recently completed my MFA in Writing at the University of San Francisco. Currently, I am putting the finishing touches on my nonfiction collection of essays, titled Stories You Don't Ask For, as well as starting work on my first novel. While at USF, I was also the nonfiction editor for the literary magazine Switchback.
I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, spent most of my childhood in Connecticut, when to college in Philadelphia, had my first paid job in New York City, and was the first female employee at a startup in Palo Alto that has since been acquired. Now I live in San Francisco with my husband and work in San Jose. When I ignore both my paid and creative responsibilities, you can find me equipped with either running shoes or a yoga mat. Soon, hopefully you'll also find me on the cover of book jackets at your local bookstore.
Thanks again for visiting and please sign up for the reading list!
