Writing

I write about California, culture, literature, and contemporary/modern art in traditional or unconventional formats.

Previous publications include FLAUNT, PAPER, BUST, The Rumpus, Los Angeles Review of Books, and The Awl, among others

I am currently working on my first book. Anthony Mattero at Foundry Literary + Media is my agent.
