The Stories We Tell Show What Values We Hold.
I write fiction, plays, and screenplays that problematize the effects of the political process on average people. Inspired by the stories I heard growing up in an immigrant family whose journey was shaped by authoritarianism, I write stories that seek to raise discourse and challenge preconceptions.
In hoping to better develop as such a storyteller, I'm currently a Master's student in the creative writing program at NYU. Right now, I'm working on a full-length play, a one-hour television pilot, an epistolary novel manuscript, and a smattering of several other smaller projects. I also write op-eds and do freelance work.
When not writing, I can be found cooking copious amounts of Sicilian food, yelling at my TV while watching Miami Hurricanes football, and running.
