I am an enthusiastic instructor of first year composition at CUNY Queens College while pursuing my PhD at the Grad Center. My research interests include affective whiteness in writing classrooms and the intersections of dis/ability, race, and trauma in children’s literature and media. I am currently working on my first novel, a queer YA fantasy.

My CUNY Commons website, where I explore the intersections of race and dis/ability in both composition classrooms and in children’s/YA literature, can be found here.
