Also follow me on:

I am a freelance writer, editor, and ballet teacher based in the Bay Area. I grew up in San Francisco and entered a complicated relationship with the MUNI at an early age. I began dancing at San Francisco Ballet School and went on to study dance at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, before returning to the Bay Area to study Human Biology at Stanford University. After graduating, I worked in book publishing on both coasts, first interning at W.W. Norton & Co., Sterling Lord Literistic, and McSweeney's, and later working at The Zoë Pagnamenta Agency.

Currently, I curate for HubPages, write for StoryTerrace, and teach dance to children and to people suffering from Parkinson's disease. I enjoy playing guitar, telling live stories at The Moth's StorySLAMs, gardening, and above all dancing.

    After setting a simple rule for myself - "don't check your phone in public" - and struggling to follow it, I began compiling a list of rewarding, if not entirely comfortable, phone-free activities.
