I'm a journalist, writer, and translator based in Texas.

Before moving south, I worked on the editorial staff at the New Yorker. Before that, I was a James Reston Reporting Fellow at the New York Times.

My work has been supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and appears or is forthcoming in the Guardian, POLITICO Magazine, the New York Times, the Nation, the New Yorker online, the Village Voice, among other places, and in City by City: Dispatches from the American Metropolis (n+1 / Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2015). My translation of Yanick Lahens' novel Moonbath (Deep Vellum, 2017) was awarded a French Voices Prize.

I studied Comparative Literature at Brown University, and I grew up in Arizona.
