I grew up in Indiana, with a single parent and no siblings. Young and queer, I didn't have much to relate to in the sparse world around me. That's why I started reading, watching, and playing as many works as possible, to try to catch just a glimpse of what I could someday expect to find outside of my hometown. In 2014, I moved to New York to put what I had learned to the test. Since then, I've written hundreds of articles across dozens of publications. I've devoted this page to pieces I'm especially proud of, but you can find more of my work at the bylines listed below.
