Blantyre Sunset.jpg

I am a nonfiction writer originating from Blantyre, Malawi, currently living and writing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

I lived in St. John’s, Newfoundland from the ages of four to ten years old, before our family returned to Malawi in 1994.  I later attended university in the US, graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 2006 with a major in International Relations and a minor in Creative Writing.  

In addition to writing (and its necessary corollary, reading), I like traveling whenever I can make (read: afford) those opportunities, and exploring Philly on foot, mapping the city by the places I get my coffee so I can write and the secondhand bookstores where I find the writers I aspire to follow.
