Hi! I’m a journalist and fiction writer. I’m interested in investigative journalism, personal stories, and life-changing ideas.

I have a B.S. in physics and a B.A. in creative writing from the University of Southern California and an M.F.A. in fiction from Cornell University. I’ve worked as a reporter and editor at Science magazine. In 2015-2016, I spent nine months in Nicaragua on a Fulbright grant, researching a novel.

I’ve written articles for ScienceThe New York Times Magazine, and TED Ideas.
My fiction has been published in Granta, The Hudson Review, Writer’s Digest, Electric Literature, and The Kenyon Review.
