I'm a writer, educator, and erstwhile composer. I'm currently at work on an essay collection about the resonance of inherited objects, and these essays have appeared or are forthcoming in the Iowa Review, the New England Review, the Georgia Review, Hotel Amerika, the Normal School, and Salmagundi. I’m the recipient of the 2019 New England Review Award for Emerging Writers.
I’ve lived in Indianapolis, New Haven, and twenty-one different apartments in New York City.
I’m interested in the myths of capitalism, and I focus slightly more on degeneracy than on progress.
I hold a B.A. in English and Music from Yale and obtained a Ph.D in Music Composition as a Chancellor's Fellow at the CUNY Graduate Center. For Spring 2019 I’m a Lecturer in writing at the Department of English at Yale University. I also work as a tutor and educator for Zinc Educational Services. I am a climate activist.
