I teach in the Composition Department at UC Irvine, where I earned an MFA in Creative Writing in 2014. My fiction and nonfiction has appeared (or is forthcoming) in ZYZZYVA, Vice's Terraform, The Saturday Evening Post, First Things, the Los Angeles Review of Books, ABC's Religion and Ethics, New Haven Review, The Smart Set, Amazon's Day One, FLAUNT Magazine, Juked, Gargoyle Magazine. I'm a contributing columnist at The Independent and literary editor at Arc Digital. In 2016 I received an Emerging Writers Grant from the Elizabeth George Foundation. Their generosity enabled me to complete my first novel, Lightless Lands, for which I am currently seeking representation.
