For over fourteen years she worked as a lighting technician, production assistant and tour manager. In 2008 Tavi earned an MFA in creative writing from Lesley University in Boston.

Tavi’s debut novel Where Are We Tomorrow? was a finalist in several contests, including the 2021 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the 2021 NYC Big Book Award.
