I’m a journalist thinking and writing about culture, ideas, people, and animals. I’ve written for VoxThe New York TimesThe Forward, and lots of other places. 

 

I used to be an editor for Harvard Magazine, where I wrote and edited features, book reviews, news, and research stories. Before that, I wrote for the editorial boards of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and The Toledo Blade and edited the opinion page of The Harvard Crimson. 

I dance bhangra and Bollywood, but not very well; please assign me a story about it instead!
