I grew up in Syracuse, New York. I attended St. Lawrence University where I studied Economics and Philosophy. In 2012 I began a PHD Economics program at George Mason University, but dropped out after one semester because I felt my soul withering into dust. Between 2013-2017 I worked in restaurants throughout New York City (bus-boy, drink runner, bartender, waiter, assistant manager, rapscallion) and worked one summer for a small real estate company. I’ve lived in Hell’s Kitchen, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and I believe that New York City is the greatest city in the world.

In August 2017 I will begin studying at Columbia University to earn my Master of Science in Journalism. At the moment, I’m brainstorming a thesis in the vein of immigration. I’m also teaching myself Japanese. My dream is to work as a journalist at the 2020 summer Olympics in Tokyo.

After working for a couple of years as a journalist for a newspaper or a magazine, my plan is to publish novels. Make sure to subscribe to my email list on my homepage so you can receive a message when I do this. There are 5-6 novels in me I’d like to write before I die.

In the meantime…
