I am currently a freelance writer in Atlanta. I was an idealist for most of my twenties, completing a term with the AmeriCorps in St. Louis before teaching English in an Ethiopian-Israeli community south of Tel Aviv, Israel. I met my partner in Jerusalem, and she surprised me with a proposal while we were overlooking the city. Married in LA in 2014, I'm now pregnant with our first child. I have a bachelor's degree in history and women's and gender studies and a master's in social work with a concentration in nonprofit management.
