A constant passion of mine has always been reading and writing. I’m a native of Miami, Florida, and I went to college at New York University, where I majored in East Asian Studies with a focus in Japanese literature. After graduating, I lived and worked in Japan for several years before deciding to pursue a career as a teacher. I graduated (again) from New York University with a Masters degree in English Education. As a recent transplant to Denver from New York City, I spend much of my free time exploring my new home. I also write fiction for both adults and young adults, practice yoga, watch movies, dine out, and hang out with my husband and two cats.
