I am a journalist and nonfiction writer based in Brooklyn, NY. I have published arts criticism for Mn Artists, as well as an essay on underground music. In addition to writing, I work as a fact-checker for a magazine company and as a research assistant at Parsons School of Design. I am a graduate student in the Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism M.A. program at The New School.

In my visual art practice, I focus on analog techniques and mainly work with film and collage. Occasionally I bring this sensibility to the computer for graphic design and text layout. For more, take a look at my portfolio.
