I’m a writer + an editor

No kidding! I have a B.A. in creative writing and studio art from Santa Fe University of Art and Design and an M.F.A. in fiction from Vermont College of Fine Arts. I wrote my thesis on satire + humor writing, though I often write stories that aren’t funny at all.

I’m the founder of Eye on Design, published by AIGA, the oldest and largest not-for-profit design organization in America. We cover the best new work by the world’s most exciting designers, and the issues they care about.



Before that I co-founded food + design platform MOLD while working as a senior editor at Conde Nast (Details magazine, RIP). Prior to that I was an editor at The Architect’s Newspaper, the editor of the Sundance Channel’s blog, a ghost writer for TED speakers, and a freelance art + culture writer for Print, Interview, Frieze, Art in America, Slate, The Paris Review’s blog The Daily, Cool Hunting, Core77, and a slew of nerdy little niche sites.
