I'm an award-winning essayist and reporter with extensive bylines across digital and print media. My work tends to consider race, teen longing, dislocation, and skin color. I've published multiple cover stories, lengthy profiles, and reported essays. My stories have appeared, often regularly, in the Village Voice, Atlantic.com, Vulture, the New York Times, newyorker.com, Marie Claire, Real Simple, TOPIC, the Rumpus, VICE, and Believer Magazine. In 2019, I toured the country as a contributor with Pop Up Magazine. Subjects I've profiled include Hasan Minhaj, Chloe Wise, Salman Rushdie, and Fatimah Asghar.
My TLDR list:
in defense of cousins who fall in love, on ramy and irl (vulture)
all about my mother (TOPIC)
an elegy for dallas strip mall restaurants (food & wine)
too sad to move: on the paralysis of depression (village voice)
