If you want my scholarly work, check out my CV. This page is dedicated to my creative writing.
I set aside creative writing for a decade+ while pursuing my academic career, though I never stopped writing (I’ve maintained a daily journal since I was a teenager). In recent years, it’s become more important to me to work through my experiences creatively, which I do both through dance and writing. And just as I perform increasingly vulnerable dance pieces for audiences (example), I’m starting to publish my writing.
And, as seen at right, I’m an award-winning writer!
