Who I Am
I write features, profiles, and blog entries for major outlets, along with advertorials and "edvertorials." I’ve contributed to four books. The New York Times praised my work for a travel anthology.
My work frequently appears on UtneDigest.com, TheAtlantic.com, TheAtlanticCities.com, TheAlanticWire.com, and GuernicaMag.com. My magazine work has appeared in Time Out, Maxim, and USAirways.
Copy writing and ghosting clients include: a politically centrist group for whom I blogged daily, Knob Creek Bourbon (I wrote their Website), Capella University (their Web and print infographics), Lincoln Motor Co., Zezza/Tenthwave, The Economist, The Atlantic, Condé Nast Traveler, and The New Yorker.
I'm a former editor and writer of special sections for The New Yorker magazine. I’ve been a managing editor at Forbes, Inc., an editor of a celebrity-oriented glossy, a research editor, an associate editor, and a fact checker.
I'm also a Senior Editor/Fiction Editor at Guernica. Esquire cited my work. The pieces I’ve edited have won awards such as Best of the Web, Best of the Net, and Africa’s top literary prize.
My fiction has appeared in many journals, been anthologized, and nominated for prizes, including a Pushcart and Million Writers. I’ve received scholarships—most notably to the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference and the Summer Literary Seminars, in Russia. I also speak about writing and editing at conferences and universities: New York, Boston, Vermont, and Lisbon, Portugal.
