Welcome to Brooklynstan, my borderland home between right and left brain, east and west, familiar and foreign.
Bursting to tell a story? I combine structure and systems with creative ideas and intuition to help people write.
Roohi provided exactly the kind of high-concept fundamentals that I needed to give my work structure and direction. She gave me the tools to be able to be able to think deeply and critically about my own work. As a result I am able to apply far greater critical rigor to my work. I now have the tools to make sure that my writing is working as hard as it can in pursuit of my story's development, my characters' development and the book's eventual resolution.

I came to Roohi with a collection of short stories that didn’t feel finished. This collection was weighing on my heart because I wanted to tell these stories on a way that would be effective, powerful and reach my target audience. After several months of working with Roohi, I have finally found my voice. She’s so good at targeting the points in my writing that need work and providing concrete solutions.
