Dear Internet,

Thank you for finding my website. I am a content strategist with experience in print and online publications, like, The Rumpus, The Millions, and The Believer, among others.

Since August 2011, I've been creating, editing, and managing content for, a top 50 web property. I get to choose our words of the day, write slideshows about the intricacies of English, and occasionally play with complex programming languages I do not speak. Here's our blog.

From May 2011 until July 2013, I was 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. 

I also review art shows. 

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 Oakland, 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.
