Hello! I am a writer and assistant professor in Baltimore. Before I taught college students, I worked lots of other jobs--mostly in New York. I cleaned motel rooms, helped manage a citizen journalism project based in Sudan, waitressed the night-shift, volunteered at a carousel museum, worked as a magazine editor, helped a poet translate her work from Arabic into English, and conducted research for a documentary television series about media accountability. Sometimes I collage for fun.
My first book, a memoir, will be published in October of this year.
