What I'm Doing Now
It's June. I'm home in Crown Heights. It's summer(ish) out, and I'm basically already living in shorts because it's about damn time, New York City.
I'm about to publish my first essay with The New York Times. The story was ten months in the making and I've never been more freaked out or proud or nervous-excited. If you're here because you read it, welcome. I hope you'll stick around a while.
One year left until I graduate from The New School. This summer, I'm an editorial intern at Narratively, an online publication "devoted to untold human stories." I'm also editing interviews & nonfiction essays for 12th Street, the Riggio Honors Writing Program's lit journal. Otherwise, I'm working on a collection of essays about everything I can think of that might make my mom cringe (sorry Mom).
A few months ago I finished editing a book for my dear friend, Derek Sivers. It's called "Your Music and People," and it's marketing book for musicians who hate marketing. I was (and still sometimes am) one of those people–so working on this project was a treat. Now that the manuscript is done, I'll be helping him get the book out into the world.
I just registered for my first half-marathon. I'm a terrible runner but it's in Coney Island so worst case I'll ditch the race and hide out on the cyclone.
Currently reading Leslie Jamison's "The Recovering."
This "now" page was inspired by my sometimes-boss.
