My passion for writing is only matched by my love for teaching.  Over the past 20 years I've had the pleasure of standing in classrooms and working on creative projects all over the world.  From New York to Beijing, and quite a few places in between, my international experience allows me to bring a unique understanding of diversity and cultural awareness to the classroom and workshops.  

As a writer I tend to walk the line between genres.  My work is oftentimes considered experimental though it remains rooted in traditional narrative structure.  I believe a writer should respect the history, rules, and trends of a genre before attempting to blaze a trail into the unknown.
