about me

My writing appears in Creative Nonfiction, The Cut, Elle, Fanzine, GuernicaJezebel, LongreadsThe Normal School, The Rumpus, SalonVice, and elsewhere. My humor essay "Is It Cancer?" received a notable mention from The Best American Essays 2015.

I live in New York City and work as a copywriter for Eileen Fisher, a job I explain to my parents as "what Elaine Benes did for the J. Peterman catalog." On a freelance basis, I have covered culture, gender, and health. I’m currently working on two nonfiction collections—one that explores the personal, and another the animal.
