Graduate Teaching Assistant

"A major goal for this course is for incoming students to develop relationships within a diversity of campus communities - clubs, organizations, rec sports teams, etc. Keys to college health are community and collaboration. We hope this course will help you to find friends, study buddies, gym buddies and artistic collaborators."

I am currently a graduate student in the creative writing program (fiction). I have a previous creative writing MA from UC Davis where my poetics thesis was entitled “THE JOY OF HUMAN SACRIFICE.” I also have previous degrees from UC Berkeley and Santa Clara University where I studied psychology, english literature, creative nonfiction, screenwriting and film.
