Hello, I'm Kamala! I write fiction, essays, and other fun ditties. I'm currently at work on my first novel, called Zigzags, about almost-adult life.

I was born in Oakland, CA where I currently live, sleep, eat, snob, wear elastic-waisted pants, skulk around the farmer's market, attempt to go to the Y, swipe on Tinder, and thrift for accessories to liven up my style.

Previously, I've lived in Portland, OR, Chicago, IL, and Southern California. I'm a proud graduate of Oberlin College and UC Riverside, where I did my MFA. 

I always want to hear the mundane struggles of your daily life, and to share my strong partially-informed opinion on the topic of your choice.
