Overview

My work lies in the intersections of literature, philosophy, and art; and I have written more than twenty books, which have been published by various local and international presses. My writings have also been featured in magazines and journals such as Arte al Límite, Berfrois, CTheory, Cenobio, Full Bleed, positions, Philosophy World Democracy, Qui Parle, TimeOut, VICE, and Voice & Verse Poetry Magazine, amongst others; and have been translated into the Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Serbian. Exploring writing in other media has led me to film, music, performance-talks, and the visual arts; and my work has been exhibited in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, Vienna, Seoul, and Singapore. My experience as an editor has further honed my sensitivities to the crafts of reading and writing. As such, I have a deep appreciation not just for the nuances of language, but have also refined the ability to attend to a text in order to help shape it into an appropriate form for what it is attempting to convey.

Work experience

General Editor

Delere Press
December, 2011 – Present (about 11 years)

Delere Press is a boutique press.

And, we aim to publish books — exploring ideas, notions, philosophies — which are pretty. For, we are attempting to explore the relationships between thought and aesthetics. Like all endeavours, this will take time; and we won’t get it right from the very start. Perhaps, we never will. But, if we knew what we were doing before we even did it, we wouldn’t be — it couldn’t be called — thinking.

Thinking and aesthetics are not antonyms.
Thoughts are beautiful. And no, this does not mean we merely dress them up: this is no botox press.

This is full on plastic surgery.
