I'm a writer. My short stories have appeared in failbetter, Joyland, Hobart, Booth, Eclectica, Strange Horizons, Subterranean, Shimmer, Pindeldyboz, and many other journals and anthologies, including Wilde Stories: The Year's Best Gay Speculative Fiction. I'm also an occasional film and television critic at Slant Magazine and a book critic at Strange Horizons. I've frequently judged fiction writing contests for NYC Midnight and I was also the Assistant Editor of a special "Queers Destroy Fantasy!" issue of Lightspeed Magazine. I hold an MFA in Fiction from New York University, where I also 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 twelve years. I live in Brooklyn and I'm working on a novel.
