My fiction has appeared in Agni, Hayden's Ferry Review, MoMA PS1's Special Projects Writers' Series and other places; my play The Adventures of Comic Weekly Man: Encounter on Lookout Mountain received a staged reading in Emerging Artists Theatre's Spring 2018 New Works Series. A 2014 fellow at the Edward F. Albee Foundation, I have also had residencies at the Millay Colony, Monson Arts, 33 Officina Creativa in Toffia, Italy; the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Catwalk; and the Vermont Studio Center.
As a journalist and film critic, I have written for ARTnews, the Boston Phoenix, cléo, the Hartford Advocate the Kansas City Star, the Rumpus, and other publications. I have also written audio tours for the Getty, Guggenheim, Metropolitan Museum of Art and other museums.
