I’m a writer in Los Angeles.

For magazines, I’ve written about China’s art malls, mega-mansion architects in LA, Brazilian literary frenemies, and lots of other interesting places and people. For film and TV, I’ve written for Channel Zero¬†on Syfy, and, up next, I wrote a horror-thriller feature for Blumhouse that will stream on Hulu in 2020.

My work has been published by Vogue, Artforum, V, Wallpaper*, Poetry Foundation, the Guardian, and the New York Times, among many other publications. Until 2018, I was a contributing writer at W covering art and design. Before that, I acted as an editor at Aperture and at Artnews, and worked at places like the Paris Review and the Onion. For a short time, I lived in China and in Brazil.

You can get in touch with me on my contact page. BTW: I also go by Ali.
