About Me

Hi! I’m a speculative fiction writer who lives in Pittsburgh. My stories have appeared in Asimov’s, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Interzone, and Factor Four.

I’m also an essayist and critic, and I have a PhD in philosophy. My essays and reviews have appeared in publications including The New Republic, The Los Angeles Review of Books, 3:AM Magazine, The Hedgehog Review, Real Life Mag, Philosophy & Social Criticism, and many others.

This blog is a place for thinking informally about my work, chatting about the books I’m reading, and chronicling my efforts to achieve a deep understanding of my environment.
