I reside in Port Washington, which is on Long Island but not of it. I've written about Edgar Allan Poe, flip-flops, murderers, and John Berryman, but I've disproportionately spent my time interviewing superior practicioners, including: 

Rahawa Haile 
David Grann
Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah
Rukmini Callimachi
Saul Bellow
Tom Wolfe 

You may also find me at Longform, where I've been an editor since 2011.
