What do you write?

Fiction and essays of all shapes and sizes.

What's your favorite subject to write about?


Who is your favorite author?

No favorites, but I've long been fond of Camus and Sartre, Ursula K. Le Guin, Fitzgerald, and the American Transcendentalists.

If you could meet any dead writer, who would it be?

Oh, I don't know. What would I do with a dead person?

What do you hope to achieve in your work?

Everything I write is only in service of growing as this here person who identifies with the word "writer". As an editor I aim to promote world-class literature and facilitate connections across communities in the literary world. I suppose I'd like to earn some coin, too.


Native Vermonter with a strong dose of wanderbug. My writing is either available or forthcoming in Big Bridge, Cultural Logic, and Goreyesque. Founding editor of Mount Island, a nonprofit literary magazine.
