My MFA thesis, a collection of short stories tentatively titled With Great Joy and Reckless Abandon, is underway.

With the advice of writer Zarina Zabrisky, I’m working on a collection of translations featuring contemporary authors writing from Eastern Ukraine. It began as a project for Paul Hoover‘s seminar “The Craft of Translation” at SFSU. If you’re interested in this project, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
