about me

I’m an editor, writer, and teacher living in Brooklyn. I grew up in the Appalachian Mountains of Southwest Virginia, and I've taught at Yale, Princeton, and Columbia. I've written and published several academic articles, as well as a book, Black Market, which explores the ways that slavery continued to shore up the nation’s economy and culture after formal abolition in 1865. As an editor, I've worked with literary critics, historians, cultural studies scholars, and academics in the social sciences on all kinds of projects. I love helping authors make headway on their journey, so if you’ve got a project in mind and you want some insight and guidance, get in touch through my contact page and let’s talk about it.
