I would gaze at the J train passing over the Williamsburg Bridge wondering about its contents. Who were the people? Where were they going? What were their stories? That is where I would daydream while growing up in the colorful Lower East Side.

I wrote plays and short stories in my journals. Acted out a few with my younger cousin. Eventually taking it seriously and taking creative writing classes and television production classes in high school. I eventually would study filmmaking and come back full circle where it all began–with the story.

I recently graduated from City College of New York with an MFA in Creative Writing. My recent story, The Purple Crayon was published in the Promethean Literary Journal. I’m a VONA/Voices summer 2017 recipient. Plus there is other stuff.
