Thank you for finding my website. I am a writer and editor for print and online publications, like The Rumpus, The Millions, and The Believer, among others.
I am the Books Editor at the Rumpus. With some regularity, I write a column called "A Modern Reader" where I wade through the sea of text that I confront--and feel overwhelmed by.
Last August, I started a new job as a Content Editor at Dictionary.com. It's odd, but enjoyable.
At NYU's Gallatin School, I studied early Christianity, specifically selfhood in Saint Augustine's Confessions. While there, I also studied writing with Ed Park, Scott Hightower, and Nettie Jones.
I grew up in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago and now live in Berkeley, California.
Hopefully, you now understand, dear reader, that I am a competent, intelligent, and socially approved young-ish lady. If you would like me to review a book, edit an essay, or contribute to your up-and-coming literary publication, just ask. All inquiries welcome.
