I am a writer and video artist who makes moving texts, essays, and fragments. I am interested in working with the physicality of language and the tension between speech and its documentation.

My writing has appeared in the Los Angeles Review of Books, Gulf Coast, sfmoma’s Open Space, Apogee, Vol 1 Brooklyn, and Unbag. Criticism in Artforum, KQED arts, Art Papers, BOMB, Electronic Book Review, and Afterimage, and elsewhere. Currently, in collaboration with Gabriel Garza, I run a curatorial project in San Francisco called In Concert.

A book of poetry, The Almond is forthcoming from 1080 press and I Love Repair, my MFA thesis at Brown University, won the 2019 Francis-Mason Harris ‘26 Prize for a book length manuscript. At the moment I work part-time at Small Press Traffic, a Bay Area publishing project and produce a semi-annual newsprint that celebrates remediation.
