about

short bio: I write, mostly about sound.

long(er) bio: I’m a writer, gender equality activist, editor, translator, and eternal student who is passionate about feminism, music, and storytelling. I grew up in Georgia and Alabama, then moved to NYC to study Romance Languages and Music at NYU. Since graduating in 2012, I’ve worked at RILM Abstracts of Music Literature and the New York Review of Books, as well as for new music collective ensemble mise-en. I also write freelance journalism/criticism and volunteer as a member of the National Organization for Women’s Action Center. Next spring I plan to pursue graduate studies in ethnomusicology at Stony Brook University, where I was awarded a Graduate Council Fellowship. My primary research interest is the sounds of protest & worship of anti-abortion protesters, but I’m also interested in sound studies & gender studies more generally, critical race theory, sound maps, drones, philosophy & anthropology of the voice, and late 20th-/early 21st-century music-makers like Yoko Ono & Meredith Monk. I live in Brooklyn.
