Personal Statement

I write poetry, personal essays, and narrative nonfiction. Much of my work focuses on the ways contemporary places are transformed by transnational forces such as migration and climate change. Currently, I am working on a book of narrative nonfiction about water, displacement, and climate change in Nicaragua.
