Hi, hello, welcome. I’m an Iowa-born, California-bred, New York-based culture journalist, essayist, and collaborative writer for Idea Architects, where I co-wrote the forthcoming Mount Everest memoir, In the Shadow of the Mountain, to be released by Holt in February 2022 and adapted into a feature film starring Selena Gomez. I was a featured essayist in Lilly Dancyger's 2019 anthology, Burn it Down: Women Writing About Anger, and am forever at work on my own memoir about fire, mysticism, and madness, set at the foot of a cosmic mountain in rural Northern California.
Whether telling my own stories or reporting on the lives of others for publications like Gossamer, Bazaar, and Victory Journal, I'm drawn to boundary breakers; to intersections and in-between places. Art-making, the body, spirituality, and badass women and queer people doing their thing, whatever that thing may be, are my chosen lanes.
I'm represented by Nicki Richesin of Dunow, Carlson & Lerner.
