I am a writer, teacher, and OER devotee from New Mexico. My memoir essays have appeared in journals including Creative NonfictionAscent (this essay was nominated for a Pushcart Prize), and a story I worked on appeared on NPR’s This American LifeI am working on my first book, a memoir.

I blog about my writing and publishing process here on my site. I graduated from the University of New Mexico’s MFA program. I teach English, develop open educational materials, and find time to write, mostly in that order. I have been writing for nearly as long as I have been reading.
