What I'm Doing Now
It's December. I'm home in Crown Heights with my fiance and our three cats. We are thrilled about sweater weather.
I published my first essay in The New York Times this summer, and now I'm trying to expand my skillset to journalism, too. In October Narratively published this wonderful interview I did with author Reema Zaman. They also published my first reported feature, a longform piece about an amazing recovery community that creates a safe space for kinksters, sex workers, and members of alternative lifestyles. The piece was three months, thirteen interviews and a zillion bags of Sour Patch Kids in the making.
I've just about wrapped up my coursework at The New School. Between working at Narratively, classes and writing, my days are full. I'm busy, but so very content.
I also just completed 36 hours of volunteer advocate training with the Crime Victims Treatment Center. Twice a month, I'm on-call to support rape and domestic violence victims at hospitals around New York City. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time, and I'm so stoked to be a part of the program.
Although I've slowed down my marathon training schedule until early spring, I am still as dedicated as ever to ice-cream sandwiches.
Currently re-reading "No Man's Land" by Eula Biss.
This "now" page was inspired by my dear friend and former boss, Derek Sivers.
