I began my career at Artforum magazine, where I moved up the ranks from editorial assistant to associate editor. In that last position, I oversaw all exhibition coverage in the United States and traveled the world writing on fairs and exhibitions. I left the magazine in 2009 to embark on a freelance career, working mostly on books, though also editing hundreds of feature articles and reviews for Art in America magazine. In 2015, I took a staff position as associate editor at Art in America, where I worked for the next five years before returning full-time to my freelance career.
With my background editing art writing--which, notoriously, can tend toward jargon and inscrutability--I'm especially skilled at helping writers say what they mean in ways that readers can connect with and understand. I'm known for my sharp eye and my ability to make prose shine.
