I've cleaned motel rooms, helped manage a citizen journalism project based in Sudan, waitressed the night-shift, volunteered at a carousel museum, worked as a magazine editor, collaborated with a French philosopher, and conducted research for a documentary television series about media accountability. I'm now an assistant professor of English at Towson University where I teach creative nonfiction. I also teach creative nonfiction at Johns Hopkins University.
My memoir, The Glass Eye, will be published by Tin House Books in October 2017. My writing has appeared in The Believer, Little Star Journal, NewYorker.com, Prairie Schooner, Times Literary Supplement, Tin House, and elsewhere. I live in Baltimore with my partner Chris and our cats Flannery and Bishop. I'm currently working on a collection of essays.
