I’m a writer in Los Angeles who was born in New York City.

I wrote the feature Tentacles, a psychological thriller produced by Blumhouse, now streaming on Hulu. I have a few other projects currently in development, including a horror film at Corporate Witchcraft. For TV, I’ve written for the cult anthology series Channel Zero¬†on Syfy.

In the past, I wrote for magazines: about China’s art malls, Brazilian literary frenemies, LA mega-mansion architects, and lots of other interesting places and people. My work has been published in Vogue, Artforum, Vanity Fair, the Guardian, the New York Times, and others. I used to be a contributing writer at W covering art and design, and, before that, an editor at Aperture and at Artnews. For a short time, I lived in China and in Brazil.
