My short stories have been published in Southwest Review, Greensboro Review, and Best American Nonrequired Reading. I'm completing a collection of fiction as well as longform writing about the Standing Rock movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. My reporting, narrative nonfiction, interviews, and writing about the environment, social justice, photography, fiction, music, and film has appeared in/on The Paris Review, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Vogue, The Believer, Aperture, The Guardian, T, W, Oxford American, New York, Guernica, Pitchfork Review, The Washington Post Magazine, and Transgressor.

I'm a MacDowell Colony fellow and I've been an artist in residence at Djerassi Resident Arts Program, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, Caldera, and the Virginia Center for Creative Arts. I'm a past editor at DoubleTake, American Short Fiction, The Onion, O.Henry Prize Stories, Vogue, and elsewhere. I grew up in North Carolina and I also claim Austin, Texas, among my hometowns. I received my MFA from the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas and my undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where I was first published in and later worked on the Greensboro Review. I live in New York City.
