I am an activist, a cyclist, and a writer of speculative and interstitial fiction. Originally from Brooklyn, I studied law and philosophy before becoming a community lawyer specializing in housing. In 2004, I immigrated to Canada. I currently live in Montréal where I work for a community organization as a social rights advocate.
My short stories have appeared in The Future Fire, Spark: A Creative Anthology, TFF 10th Anniversary Anthology, Tabulit, and the podcast GlitterShip. I also curate and participate in literary readings in Canada and abroad, and my reviews have been published in Matrix Magazine online. For the past two years, I have served as a panelist at the Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature. My debut novel, Cycling to Asylum, was long-listed for the 2015 Sunburst Award for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic.
On this site, you will find some of my writing, reviews and preoccupations. Feel free to share your thoughts on any of the above.
