I grew up in Wilton, CT with three siblings - my best friends - and two wonderful parents. After graduating from Wilton High School, I went on to Colgate University in Hamilton, NY. At Colgate, I majored in English and Creative Writing and worked as a tutor in Colgate's Writing Center. I started a career in publishing at The Robbins Office, a literary agency in New York City, before moving to Boulder, CO, where I'm trying to pursue a balanced life full of activity, intellectual challenges, and good people. HooplaHa, a place for both laughter and reflection, is the first step toward fulfilling that goal.
