I'm a writer and occasional editor living in Takoma Park, Maryland. I write for publications like the New Republic, Longreads, Pitchfork, Catapult, Hazlitt, Rolling Stone, the Poetry Foundation, Buzzfeed, and Literary Hub. I also used to be a contributor at Jezebel.
I have a B.A. from the College of William and Mary and an M.A. in Literature from the George Washington University. I am—and will be in perpetuity—ABD at the University of Maryland, College Park, where I studied Victorian literature.
My first book, TOO MUCH: How Victorian Constraints Still Bind Women Today, from Grand Central Publishing, hits bookstores on January 28, 2020. It laces cultural criticism, Victorian literature, and storytelling together to explore how culture corsets women's bodies, souls, and sexualities—and how we might finally undo the strings.
