Transformative Writing Practitioner



Wonder, "the feeling of the philosopher," is the guiding light of my life, and it has lead me here to this very moment as a writer and transformative writing practitioner.

I am a New York based writer of screenplays, prose poetry, fiction and trans-autobiographical literary works. My work can be found in The Minetta Review, Pank Magazine, Eleven and a Half Journal, and more. Recently, my screenplay, “Ocean Gray” won an Official Selection at the Love Wins Film Festival and New York Movie Awards. "Ocean Gray" won Best Story Award at the Buddha International Film Festival in Pune, India. 

While writing is my passion, my life's work does not end with my own practice. As a Transformative Writing practitioner, I also teach others the power of writing—its ability to integrate the psyche, to self-actualize the personality, to transform the individual and to increase soul well-being—through an individualized journey of writing exercises, including expressive, SOC, creative life, and trans-autobiographical writing. 

City Reflection

Transformative Writing Practitioner

Transformative Writing is the practice of intentional excavation of perception, memory, emotion and meaning-making through language. In agreeing to consciously cooperate with the entirety of our psyche through transformative writing, we come into a harmonious relationship with the hidden aspects of "the self" thereby opening a pathway for our true selves to experience the world.

As a practitioner, I am not a guide nor a life coach, but instead a fellow human on a transformative writing journey beside you. I hope to inspire those who work with me to reimagine and reframe the limiting stories that they tell about themselves in order to live a happier, more aligned and more inspired life.

I invite you to practice alongside me.
