I’m a writer and editor working mainly in areas of politics, history, law, science, and the arts. I am a senior editor with the Harvard University Press and was previously managing editor of Boston Review, a small-but-mighty political and literary magazine.

My writing has been published by the Washington Post, Boston GlobeNew RepublicLA Review of Books, Democracy Journal, the Baffler, and others.

As a freelance developmental editor, copy editor, and copywriter, I have worked with book publishers and with authors of serious nonfiction published by academic and trade presses, scholarly journals, and magazines.
