A native of Colombia, I immigrated to the United States seventeen years ago, seeking political asylum. I received my law degree from Indiana University and my MFA in English and creative writing from Long Island University. As a regular contributor to Pressenza, International Press Agency, I have interviewed writers and human rights activists. Currently, I am a practicing attorney in New York and enjoy traveling and cooking in my spare time. Thank you for considering my work.
