Hello! I’m an editor at Longreads. I edit and produce essays, narrative nonfiction, and in-depth journalism from writers and illustrators around the world, some of whom have won a Pushcart Prize and a National Magazine Award, or been notably mentioned in Best American Essays. Other writers have landed agents or book deals as a result of an essay we worked on together.

Alongside my role at Longreads, for over a decade I’ve worked as a story wrangler and editor across Automattic: finding and telling customer stories, developing writing and photography courses, managing and writing on company blogs and social channels, and crafting copy for our products and apps, notably WordPress.com.

I was born and raised on the San Francisco Peninsula. In the Before Times, I traveled widely and often. Currently, my husband and I are raising a spritely preschooler in the Bay Area.

I’m interested in tiny things, the ’90s, old jungle mixtapes, punctuation, my cats, and the perfect blend of tech house. And, as those who know me can attest, I’m not to be fed after midnight. At the moment, I’m most active at Longreads, but also posting on Mastodon and Tumblr.
