Hello! My writing has appeared or is forthcoming in Best Sex Writing 2013, Pank, Guernica, Gertrude, and elsewhere. I’m a contributor and former editor at The Rumpus and founding editor of The Splinter Generation. I teach at Antioch University Los Angeles, where I received my MFA, and Writing Workshops Los Angeles (where, if you live in Los Angeles, I offer classes.) I have been awarded fellowships by the Jentel Arts Residency Program and the Foreverland Transmedia Project. I hope to complete my first collection of essays within the next year. I am also working on a literary novel that has goblins and a collection of short stories that does not have any goblins, at least not yet.
You should also know that I once peed in a urinal next to Buzz Aldrin. I was raised by three psychologists and a psychiatrist. I date men and women, and no, I’m not confused. I moved to Los Angeles from San Francisco from Syracuse from Menlo Park from Santa Cruz from Denver from Boston from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania from, again, Denver, so I don’t know how to answer when people ask me where I’m from. I am terrified of birds because of their affiliation with dinosaurs. I drink too much coffee. I love science museums, and I used to work in one. I also used to work in politics, but I’m glad I don’t anymore. I loathe filing. I am in love with John Bellairs, though I didn’t discover him until a couple years ago thanks to a very good friend.
