I am a freelance writer and editor with an interest in music and art that unpicks fixity. Some of the things I’ve written include: a column about listening for NPR Music; an essay about Karin Dreijer’s contribution to music; a profile of N.Y.C. collective Discwoman; a piece about Ryuichi Sakamoto’s Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence soundtrack for Criterion Collection; and a memoir-ish piece about overhearing intimacy for Hazlitt.

I was the managing editor of The FADER in New York from 2014-2018. Before that, I was an editor at Dummy in London from 2009-2013. I’ve spoken on panels in Tokyo, Berlin, and Brooklyn; hosted radio shows on The Lot and NTS; given talks at the University of Warwick, Leeds College of Music, NYU Gallatin, and Syracuse University; and in spring 2019, I co-wrote a libretto for Darren Cunningham’s opera Actress X Stockhausen: SIN {X} II.

A blast from the past
In 2013, I gave this short talk about the sounds of our digital devices seeping into music.
