I milked a goat. Her name was Victoria.

I boarded a shrimp trawler before dawn on a summer morning.

I patrolled a dark street with a drug-dealer-turned-paster.

Why? Because I love a good story. Stories about people and issues — and the way the issues affect those people — are my speciality.

My work has appeared in magazines, literary journals, podcasts, newspapers, videos and even – twice – on stage.
