Sharing My Lessons in Being Human


I write to make you feel less alone.

I write to make myself feel less alone.

I write for my children. For me.

I write to examine the contents of my mind.

Hear the beatings of my own heart.


I have written (but not yet published) a full-length memoir titled Immigrant Skin.

Pre-publication honors for Immigrant Skin:

  • 2018 San Francisco Writers Conference Contest Finalist
  • 2016 Kore Press Memoir Award Contest Semi-Finalist

I write for The Huffington Post, and have published academic work in The American Economist and The Lancet. I had the pleasure of serving as editor for Here My Home Once Stood: A Holocaust Memoir.
