Hello! I am a freelance editor of longform journalism and literary nonfiction, as well as a contributing editor for Topic and a story scout for Radiolab. I have been an editor at Longreads, The New Republic and Lapham's Quarterly, and my own writing has been featured in The Guardian, The Believer, Brain Pickings, and Tin House.
I like to publish pieces that are rigorously researched and reported, as well as emotionally intelligent and driven by storytelling, with characters like:
Disney workers who just want to be paid a fair wage • Cat breeders who’ve designed the world’s chillest feline • Fathers who come together to punch out their insecurities • Mothers who just want to do LSD in peace • Teens who live out their hopes and dreams out on Tumblr • Sailors who risk their sanity in a solo race around the world • Hippies who give up on their San Francisco utopia • Politicians who know how to make an audience laugh • A candidate who hasn't outgrown his high school friends • A charismatic philanthropist who gives his millions away, one newspaper column at a time.
