I am a  writer, editor, and educator based in Brooklyn. My first book, How to Adjust to the Dark: A Novel from Poems, is forthcoming from Curbside Splendor in 2019. A chapbook of the poems from the manuscript will be published separately later this year by Long Day Press.

I hold a B.A. from Cornell University and a Ph.D. in English from Brown University, where my work was supported by the Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellowship.

I have taught courses in literature and writing at Boston University and at Brown, and I am currently the Resource Development Specialist at Baruch College's Writing Center.


My prose appears in TriQuarterly, Vol 1. Brooklyn, Prodigal, Hobart, and elsewhere.

My poetry appears in journals and volumes including SalamanderDMQ Review, The Cimarron Review, Crab Creek Review, Monkeybicycle, Denver Syntax, Specs, The Battered Suitcase, Flatmancrooked's Slim Volume of Contemporary Poetics, and elsewhere.

Critical essays and book reviews appear in Ploughshares, Electric Literature, The Iowa Review and MAKE: A Literary Magazine
