I'm a journalist and literary 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. I'm a member of the Overseas Press Club of America and Investigative Reporters and Editors, and my work on migration has been supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

My writing can found in POLITICO Magazine, the New York Times, the Nation, the New Yorker online, the Village Voice, the Review of Contemporary Fiction, 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, and I grew up in Arizona.
