ABOUT MY WORK

Background / Contact

I write critically about comics, graphic novels, and more. My byline has recently appeared in The Chicago Reader, The Comics Journal, and at Hyperallergic. Before my focus turned to comics, I wrote about music for years. My criticism and features ran in Orlando Weekly, The Brooklyn Rail, Miami New Times, Rockpile, Phoenix New Times, XLR8R, and more. I was a freelance editor for Chord magazine and a researcher on 1,000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die (Workman, 2008), a book from former Philadelphia Inquirer music editor/NPR contributor Tom Moon. I covered new records and music production for Remix magazine until they shuttered in 2009, and was a PopMatters staff writer beginning in 2004 before being named contributing editor in 2012. My work has been cited online at The Millions, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, The New Yorker, Boing Boing, and elsewhere, and I was alarmed and honored to find that I'd recently been named one of Comics Bulletin’s favorite critics. I'm originally from a Philadelphia suburb but I now live in Brooklyn, New York.
