I am a writer, editor, photographer, and National Book Critics Circle Board member. My writings have appeared in Freeman’s, Kirkus Reviews, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, and in other publications. I am also a columnist at Lithub.com and Book Editor for Jewels of the North Atlantic and Arctic, which launched in October 2017 – jonaa.org.
I received my MFA in Creative Writing (Nonfiction) in 2015 from The New School and previously studied in the Master programme in Communication for Development, Malmö University, Sweden, an interdisciplinary program analyzing the interplay between politics, media, information and communication technology, international development, diversity, conflict resolution, and theories of social change within the context of globalization.
My forthcoming book, What Remains (Picador), focuses on social and environmental justice, the consequences of globalization, and the working class of America.
I am represented by the incomparable, super likable, hard-working, Sarah Burnes, at The Gernert Company.
