about

I’m a writer, editor, and teacher in Boston. I like to think about language, ideas, and education. I’m broadly interested in intellectual and cultural history across the sciences and humanities.

I was born in Florida and grew up in Georgia, but except for a summer in New York, I’ve lived in the Boston area since 2005. I studied theoretical math and literature at MIT and Harvard, graduating in 2010. In the spring of 2017 I spent a semester doing graduate work at Harvard in philosophy and the history of science. I’ve done lab work at NASA, the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the McGovern Institute for Brain Research, and MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

After college, I developed a private tutoring practice and spent four months as an editorial intern at Boston Review. I rejoined the magazine as a staff editor from 2013 to 2017; I worked on a wide range of writing, from book reviews and literary and cultural criticism to fiction, poetry, and longform essays on politics, philosophy, economics, science, and culture. I also served as the in-house editor of BR’s books series with MIT Press.
