Dark Speculative Fiction & Other Writings

I'm a writer who lives in Chicago. My short stories often incorporate animals, transformations (grotesque and otherwise), body horror, and strange desires. I'm a first reader for the magazine Liminal Stories.

I used to write a lot of comedy, and I still tweet funny stuff on occasion. I work as a veterinarian's assistant at an animal hospital.
