As of July 2018, I am senior editor at Boston Review. I also provide freelance editing of nonfiction on subjects across the sciences and the humanities.
I have extensive experience at all stages of the editorial process, from high-level development of ideas to line-level scrutiny of style, for both general and technical audiences. I love collaborating with authors and publishers to craft clear, elegant, rigorous prose.
I joined Boston Review in 2013 as an assistant editor after serving as an intern in 2010. At the magazine, I work on a wide range of forms—feature essays and book reviews, social and political analysis, literary and cultural criticism, as well as fiction and poetry. One of my commissions was cited as a notable essay in The Best American Essays 2016, edited by Jonathan Franzen.
Besides my work on long-form essays, I’ve also edited three books of nonfiction published by MIT Press and co-edited a Boston Review chapbook of poetry, Poems for Political Disaster, which was noted in the Boston Globe and the New York Times and includes work by Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Jorie Graham and former United States Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera. In 2016 I joined editors from n+1 and Guernica for a panel on “Politics and Prose” in the Periodically Speaking series at the New York Public Library, and I co-taught a class, “How To Talk and Work with Editors,” at Muse and the Marketplace in 2017. Most recently, I edited Thinking in a Pandemic: The Crisis of Science and Policy in the Age of COVID-19, co-published by Boston Review and Verso Books.
I’ve collaborated with authors of all stripes—from graduate students and freelancers to professional essayists, journalists, and academics, including New York Times columnists, New Yorker staff writers, a Nobel Prize–winning economist, and faculty members at Harvard, MIT, Princeton, Yale, Cornell, Stanford, and Oxford.
