Welcome to my site — I'm glad you're here. I’m a writer, editor, translator, traveler, web designer, photographer, critic, storytelling consultant, and social entrepreneur. I’ve published two novels and a book of film criticism, founded Germany's first online literary journal, the writer's community Fictionaut, and West Africa's first vegetarian food service. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Ph.D. in English and have lived in New York City, Wiesbaden, Germany, New Orleans, and the Dominican Republic. I currently divide my time between Dakar and Berlin. You've come to the right place to find out more about me and my projects.
