Hi, thanks for visiting my site. I recently published my first book, Blurred Lines:
Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus
. The book is a sweeping epic
drawing on reporting with students, parents, and university administrators from
across the country.
I'm also what used to be called a "magazine feature writer," but now that we live in the digital age, let's settle on "long-form writer."
I write long-form articles on pop culture, youth movements, and various topics requiring investigatory tools. Some of my articles are weighty, and some not at all.
Right now, I'm a contributing editor at The New York Times magazine and Vanity Fair. I've won a National Magazine Award, the magazine equivalent of a Pulitzer, in profile writing. "Gawker and the Rise of the Creative Underclass,"
a New York magazine cover story, was a finalist for the feature writing award. A profile of Arianna Huffington
was also nominated for a Mirror Award.
I am in awe of the service performed by the HER Foundation
, which helps women with hyperemesis gravidarum, and Bone Cancer Research Trust U.K.
, working to solve rare cancers across the pond.
My writing has also been published in these books
as well as mentioned in these articles
