In 2013, I graduated from Northern Michigan University (NMU) with a BA in English, journalism minor, and graduated from NMU with an MA in creative writing (nonfiction) and pedagogy in December 2017 after the acceptance of my thesis, An Unstable Container. I teach English at Butte College in Chico, CA, and have been producing a podcast called Queer Americans, which will begins broadcasting Fall 2018, and which seeks to document the lived experiences of queer-identifying Americans.
