I'm a writer currently traveling through France & West Africa with my wife. As an artist, I work across multiple media, including fiction, non-fiction, plays, and poetry.
Originally from rural-Georgia, my writing explores ideas of racial construction and family legacy within the milieu of the American South. Ultimately, I'm interested in how our lives are shaped by History.
I was the recipient of a Tennessee Williams Scholarship at the 2016 Sewanee Writers Conference, was shortlisted for the 2017 Nick Darke Award, and was an alternate-finalist for a 2018 Ucross Residency. My stage-plays have been presented regionally and off-off Broadway with NY Fringe, The Flea, HERE Arts, The New School for Drama, Dune Arts Center, and Pinch n' Ouch, among others. My writing has been published in the The New York Times , the New York Public Library 'Zine, and the Percolate Blog. I'm currently seeking representation for my first novel.
I hold an MA in English, secondary-education, from Brooklyn College and an M.F.A. in Playwriting from The New School. I received my B.A. in English Literature & Letters from Oglethorpe University. I have also studied literature & writing at Trinity College, Oxford University and Emory University.
