I'm a writer. My short stories have appeared or are forthcoming in failbetter, Joyland, Booth, Eclectica, Strange Horizons, Subterranean Online, Pindeldyboz, and many other venues. I also write film and literary criticism for a variety of publications, including Slant Magazine. I hold an MFA from New York University, which I earned at the Writers Workshop in Paris, and I also work for NYU's Expository Writing Program. Originally from St. Louis, I now live in Brooklyn.
