I'm a writer. My short stories have appeared in failbetter, Joyland, Hobart, Booth, Eclectica, Strange Horizons, Subterranean, Shimmer, Pindeldyboz, and other journals and anthologies, including Wilde Stories: The Year's Best Gay Speculative Fiction. I'm also an occasional film critic at Slant Magazine and book critic at Strange Horizons. I recently earned an MFA from New York University, where I currently work for the Expository Writing Program. I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, but I've now been a New Yorker for more than a decade. I live in Brooklyn.
