Professional Info

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, I subsisted on a steady diet of YA fantasy, romance, and chocolate chip cookies from a very young age. I discovered a love for writing in elementary school and a passion for editing soon after. While attending University of California at Davis, I began my editing career at nonprofit The Culture C.O.-O.P. After graduating, I cut my publishing teeth at literary publisher Brink Literacy Project. I am currently a senior editor and managing web editor for their groundbreaking literary journal F(r)iction. I'm now fortunate to pursue my ultimate love: editing novels! I specialize in speculative fiction and romance, but am open to most genres if the author and I are a good fit. I am especially passionate about stories that introduce cultural richness and diversity. I am Mexican, Japanese, and Irish, and particularly love stories about mixed protagonists or that take place in these cultural contexts as well as any that center around black and brown people. I aim to help more women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and people of color to find success, and hope to one day create a scholarship to help address the problem of privilege in the publishing industry. When I'm not curled up with a good book, you can find me taking group classes at the gym, playing volleyball, or baking up a storm. You may also surprise me in the kitchen dancing along to mariachi!
