I'm currently the Managing Editor of BOMB Magazine's print quarterly, where I've edited short fiction, essays, and interviews featuring Lydia Davis, Danielle Evans, Rufus Wainwright, C Pam Zhang, and Wendy S. Walters. I teach writing at Columbia University, and I'm the co-chair of the Brooklyn Book Festival's fiction committee.
While finishing my MFA at Brooklyn College, I co-founded and edited Electric Literature's "Recommended Reading," a weekly fiction magazine that publishes work from new and established authors. After serving as the Director of Programs for the National Book Foundation for several years, I became the Managing Editor of Restless Books and where I edited novels in translation. I've also done freelance work for numerous organizations, including Archipelago Books, NY Parks, and the Natural Areas Conservancy.
I'm committed to helping authors refine their narratives so that their stories can resonate in the world as clearly and profoundly as they resonate in their own minds.
