My essays and reportage have appeared in Atlas Obscura, Old Northwest Review, Midwestern Gothic and Belt Magazine, among other publications. Pieces I’ve written have been selected for inclusion in a couple of anthologies: Rust Belt Chicago (Belt, 2017) and Voices from the Rust Belt (Picador USA, 2018).
I am currently a doctoral student at Purdue University, where I received the 2016-2017 Lynn Fellowship in American Studies. I’ve also studied at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Huntington University. Before graduate school, I worked as a writer, editor, and photojournalist for a series of publications in northeast Indiana.
