About Me

I am an aspiring Canadian author with Ukrainian roots. Along with writing, I love to travel, collect vinyl records, go fishing, cook food and to polish my quilting skills. I grew up and went to school in Brooklyn, New York before moving with my family to Mississauga, Ontario.

My first self-published novel, Division Clock, is a surreal insight into the workings of the mind of a protagonist who has lost all hope.
