I'm a writer and scholar currently teaching in the Humanities Program at Bard College in New York. Before coming to Bard, I taught at the University of North Carolina and at Juilliard.

My first novel came out in 2018. I just finished two nonfiction books that will be published in 2023 – one in German and one in English. Currently, I'm working on a collection of short stories.

I'm the co-founder of the non-profit organization Women Imprint. Its mission is to promote greater representation of women creatives in the public space.

From time to time I paint. My works have been exhibited in galleries in New York and featured in magazines in the U.S. and Germany.
