About Me

I came to South Carolina after living and working for three years in Poland. Formally a Fulbright grantee to Bydgoszcz, I taught English conversation and writing at Uniwersytet Kazimierza Wielkiego, helped edit English press releases for the 2018 Camerimage International Film Festival in Bydgoszcz, and led a English/Polish translation of my students’ creative works for her alma mater’s literary magazine. Later in 2019, I moved to Warsaw to teach students of over 30 different nationalities at an international school and helped facilitate workshops with the American Corners, a partnership organization with the U.S. Embassy, that supports cross-cultural exchange between U.S. and Poland. In my free time, I was part of a dramaturgy workshop where artists from different cultural backgrounds collaborated on writing and creating a public performance for World Refugee Day with Teatr Powszechny called “Woda jest bardzo zimna, ale nie mogę zostać na brzegu//The water is very cold but I cannot stay on the shore.”
