I write about film, art, music, and literature.

From 2017 to 2018, I'm a Pearl Resnick Postdoctoral Fellow at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies.  Beginning Fall 2018, I will be a postdoctoral research fellow at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University.

I'm originally from Seattle, Washington, and am a proud product of public schools, from kindergarten to Ph.D.
