I’m a fiction writer and freelance translator from Polish.

I’m also a PhD candidate at CUNY Graduate Center, writing my dissertation on Polish writer and artist Józef Czapski and Marcel Proust. I teach literature and creative writing at Brooklyn and Hunter Colleges and tutor at Kingsborough Community College.
