Welcome to my little website. Glad you decided to stop by.
I’ve had my hands in a lot of different pies over the years—digital magazine editing, indie bookselling, and social justice-based philanthropy among them—and most recently, received an MFA in Fiction from the Bennington Writing Seminars. As a freelance editor and writer, I like to make words work, and I’m always on the lookout for eclectic, challenging, and fun new projects. If you’re interested in collaborating, think I might be able to help with a manuscript you’re working on, or just want to say hello, please feel free to drop me a line.
I call San Francisco home, and when not reading and writing like a motherfucker (as Cheryl Strayed so wisely advises), I’m focused on Midnight Breakfast, a literary magazine I co-founded in 2014. In 2016, The Billfold interviewed us about the inner-workings of that process, how we build community through readership, and what it means to pay folks for their creative work in this day and age.
My off-hours are spent cooking (and ogling food porn on Instagram), drinking copious amounts of tea, binging the Criterion Channel, and playing far too much Scrabble and Two Dots. I also have an M. Phil. in Film History and Theory from Trinity College Dublin, which I put to good use by winning Oscar betting pools every year.
