I’m a writer and teacher living in Philadelphia, and I write essays about books, culture, and weird stuff I learn about in the library. I have a B.A. in English from Penn and an M.A. in English from Yale. I teach literature to cool teens who enlighten me about meme culture. My work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Lapham’s Quarterly, Hazlitt, The Baffler, and elsewhere, and has been featured by Longreads and Arts & Letters Daily. Please get in touch if you would like me to write for you or to say hello.
