about me


My writing appears in Creative Nonfiction, The Cut, Elle, Fanzine, GuernicaJezebel, LongreadsThe Normal School, SalonVice, and elsewhere. My humor essay "Is It Cancer?" received a notable mention from The Best American Essays 2015and my first short story, “Artificial Sweetener,” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2018.

I live in New York City and have worked as a copywriter for Eileen Fisher for over six years, a job I explain to my parents as "what Elaine Benes did for the J. Peterman catalog." On a freelance basis, I’ve covered culture, gender, and health. I’m currently working on a nonfiction project about my wild encounters.
