As you can see, I was once a celebrity, albeit briefly. 

 

If you'd like to receive (very) occasional updates on my work, please consider subscribing to my newsletter!

 

I am an MFA candidate at the Iowa Writers' Workshop, and an alumna of the Clarion Writers’ Workshop. I am also a 2017 Paul and Daisy Soros Fellow

My fiction has been published in Boulevard, Salt Hill, and Joyland. I have been first runner-up for the Boulevard Emerging Writers' Short Fiction Prize and finalist for the Narrative Story Contest.

I’ve worked as a tech journalist in San Francisco and a foreign correspondent in Mumbai. My reporting from India was honored by the South Asian Journalists' Association.

For now, I live in the cornfields.
