About me

I’m an American writer yet the gravitational center of my world lies somewhere over the North Atlantic between London, Lyon, and New York. My essays often return to questions of identity and place, memory and exile. I write to draw meaning out of encounters, cultures, individuals, and to challenge prevailing interpretations of current (especially SF-tech) culture.


I am also currently an EU-funded Masters student in Heritage Studies; my current academic research is an investigation of the relationship between 'authenticity' and intolerance. 

In my client work, I have consulted for international and education-focused social enterprises to help tell their impact stories, and with Californian and European food and wine clients to engage customers with compelling communications. I'm also available for French-to-English and Italian-to-English translation.
