Essayist, journalist, eavesdropper. I am currently a College of Liberal Arts fellow and MFA candidate in creative nonfiction at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, where I teach creative writing courses. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, graduated from Maine's Bowdoin College, and previously spent nine months at the Anna Tasca Lanza Cooking School in rural Sicily, where I co-produced a documentary about endangered culinary traditions. I'm currently working on a book of essays about fear.
