I'm a writer from Ireland living in Charlottesville, Virginia. I have an MFA from the University of Virginia, where I teach fiction and am currently the Editor-in-Chief of Meridian magazine. I also teach at Writer House, a non-profit writing center in Charlottesville, and work behind-the-scenes at the Young Writers Workshop. My stories, essays, reviews and interviews have appeared in The Stinging Fly, LitHub, The South Circular, Colony, Don't Do It magazine and Meridian. I'm at work on a novel.
