I’m a New York-based writer with a PhD from Yale.

My fiction has appeared in Conjunctions and I was a 2016 nominee for the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers.

I’m a contributor to BOMB MagazineEven MagazineThe Los Angeles Review of Books, Burlington Magazineand other outlets.

My nonfiction has also appeared in monographs, exhibition catalogs, and peer-reviewed journals like Word & Image, The Journal of Material Culture, and Apricota. My book on queer American modernism was formally solicited by Duke University Press.

I run an experimental Instagram feed that blends the instantaneity of social media with the close-looking of art criticism/history. You can follow the project here.

I also founded Four On The Floor, a blogazine and newsletter about art in New York. You can subscribe here.

Four on the Floor is my newsletter about art in New York City. Once a month I pick four artworks on display and then write some brief notes about each one. They're not exactly reviews--more like meditations--but I do aim to share the best work I can find. Each issue includes bonus material about art-world developments, and news about recent work by myself and others.
