Janelle Greco resides in Brooklyn but will often escape to the far reaches of Long Island to be with family, watch sea waves, go digging for clams, and let her nieces give her a "makeover." She has previously been published online in Crab Fat Magazine and Gambling the Aisle, and was also recently a finalist for the Center for Women Writers Award in Creative Non-Fiction.
She is currently working on a collection of bios based on her years spent as a teacher and manager for homeless and formerly incarcerated men in several NYC shelters. Each bio, including the one published here, is an homage to each person and their name--the memory of which would spark as much joy as if they saw the ocean for the first time.
