I have an MFA degree in English and fiction writing from the Iowa Writers' Workshop and have taught classes in fiction writing at the University of Iowa. I have received a C1 certification in German through Middlebury College's rigorous German Language School, and completed an extensive German immersion program at the Freie Universität in Berlin. I am currently at work on an MSJ degree at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, as well as revisions on a novel.
