My writing has appeared in The Guardian, Parapraxis, Cabinet, Guernica, Avidly, Post45 Contemporaries, Harvard Review, Jacket2, and Belt Magazine.
I am a PhD candidate in English and Theater and Performance Studies at the University of Chicago, where I research personality, work, and the cultural history of social science. My research often involves interviews.
I also work in visual art and performance. I’ve given performance lectures at the Renaissance Society (on friendship), the Gray Center (on ambition) and daadgalerie (on space and time).
