Simone is a freelance writer based in Oakland, CA where she almost always enjoys the weather and is almost always friendly with strangers. Her beat generally centers around youth justice and development, but she also plugs in to the vibrant literary culture of the Bay Area. She brainstorms about what contributes to conflict - both interpersonal and intrapersonal - and the ways in which we settle ourselves. Aside from freelancing and brainstorming, Simone works full-time in the Contra Costa County foster care system, and enjoys running around Lake Merritt.
