I’m a Chicago-born writer living in NYC. My work spans a number of topics, including LGBT life and history, books, movies, visual art, music, my adventures, my boyfriends, my youth and my family. Since 2019, I’ve been writing consistently about (mostly) experimental music for Pitchfork. My essays and criticism have also been published in the Los Angeles Review of Books, the Village Voice, The Baffler, Kenyon Review, The Believer, Hyperallergic, BOMB, L.A. Weekly, The Point and 3:AM Magazine. I’ve received awards, fellowships and residencies from The Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, CATWALK Institute, University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University.

I like to dance, and also to read in bathtubs.

My fiction has appeared in The Puritan, Madcap Review and The Scores, and is forthcoming in X-R-A-Y. I’m currently finishing a novel about gay men in Chicago and their children.
