I was born in Oakland, California and was raised here in the Bay Area. I have my B.A. in English and Russian Studies. I received my M.F.A. in Poetry Spring 2019 from Mills College.
I joined the Gleeson Library staff in August of 2019 assisting the Acquisitions department in expanding our collection with new materials. I previously worked in the Periodicals department at Vassar College and was most recently a Library Assistant at the Academy of Art University working in the Circulation department and doing book repair.
My interests can be varied depending on the exact frame of inquiry. Creatively, I am passionate about writing poetry and am always thinking through the body in relation to space (whether that space be notions of “home” or “power” depends on the poem). Intellectually, I tend to dabble in a variety of fields including color theory or philosophy depending on my mood. I have a deep love for all games and am an avid watcher of anime. Currently, I am trying to get back into cooking, my long lost creative love.
