I am a part-time copywriter for Iris DDB, a blogger on pop culture for My Pet Atom, and a reader for Granta and Electric Literature.

I'm also an alumnus of the US State Department's Professional Fellows Congress.

I write, I pitch, and I sometimes model user experiences. I travel the world in search of opportunities to dance on other people's tables.

'The Hushness', a novel, is coming to a mass bonfire near you.
