I'm a freelance writer in Los Angeles. I used to be an op-ed editor at the The Los Angeles Times. Before that, I was a culture editor for Vogue.com. Before that, I worked at The New York Times — for the foreign desk, the page-one desk, the opinion pages and the style magazine. I have also worked as a book editor at The New Press. My writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The Nation, The Atlantic, Vogue and other places.
