Some of What I do

I  work as a manuscript editor for hire on projects of every level: from substantive style editing and ghost writing to copy editing and proofreading. I take photographs every day here in the city of New York, which I occasionally show. I write a blog called Walkers in the City and I make a little interview series called Housedeer, the next issue of which features a lengthy interview with one of the most extraordinary of New York couples, Steve Dalachinksy and Yuko Otomo. Steve lives on through his work and through the eyes of Yuko.

During this time of pandemic, I’ve devoted my days to finishing two books; one with my friend Indra Tamang, which will be published by Turtle Point Press, and the other one a collection of interviews about Vali Myers. More details to come soon.
