I'm a writer. My short stories have appeared in failbetter, Hobart, Joyland, Strange Horizons, Shimmer, Booth, Subterranean, Eclectica, Pindeldyboz, and many other journals and anthologies, including Wilde Stories: The Year's Best Gay Speculative Fiction. I review books for Publisher's Weekly and Strange Horizons, and I'm also an occasional film critic at Slant Magazine. I hold an MFA in Fiction from New York University, where I also currently work for the Expository Writing Program. I've frequently judged fiction contests for NYC Midnight and I was the Assistant Editor of a special "Queers Destroy Fantasy!" issue of Lightspeed Magazine. I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, but I've now been a New Yorker for twelve years. I live in Brooklyn and I'm working on a novel, just like all my neighbors.
