What I'm Doing Now
It's July. I'm home in Crown Heights. I just bought three new pairs of running shorts because SUMMER.
Last month, my first essay was published in The New York Times. The story was ten months in the making and I'm immensely proud of it. If you're here because you read it, welcome. I hope you'll stick around a while.
I'm two months into my editorial internship at Narratively, an online publication "devoted to untold human stories." I'm working on my first reported story, a longform(ish) piece on the intersection of kink (BDSM) and recovery. I'm also editing nonfiction essays for 12th Street, the Riggio Honors Writing Program's lit journal.
I'm halfway through training for my first half-marathon, too. I've discovered I'm a pretty mediocre runner. Also, the best part about long-distance training is all the food you get to eat. Worst part is the mystery injuries that creep up once you pass the 6-mile mark.
Currently reading James Baldwin's "Notes of a Native Son."
This "now" page was inspired by my sometimes-boss, Derek Sivers.
