I connect with people through words.

Writing  gave me a voice when I was too self-conscious to share my thoughts, opinions, and feelings. In 2010, with the encouragement from my best friend, I started a blog called My Pen, My Voice. A few years later I self-published a collection of poetry and prose. Over the next decade I became more confident in my writing and allowed myself to take chances on the page. I love hearing from readers about their experiences and how they identify with my words.

When I’m not writing you’ll find me eating at one of my favourite restaurants in the city,  reading at my dining table, on the hunt for a great cup of coffee, or binge-watching something on Netflix.

You can find my work on She Does the City, in FeelsZine (the Anger issue), and on Healthy is Hot. To see all of my words, head over to my portfolio.
