About

I am a writer, editor, and translator living in Brooklyn, New York. As the associate editor of Hyperallergic, I write a fair amount about art and visual culture. My writing and translations have been published in Guernica, Words Without Borders, Stonecutter Journal, n+1, Asymptote Journal, The Nation, and other places. I am currently juggling a few different translation projects, from Portuguese to English, including poetry collections by Paulo Leminski and Ana Martins Marques. 

I have a master’s degree in Cultural Reporting & Criticism from New York University and a bachelor’s in English from Barnard College. 

In the past, I’ve given gallery tours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and was a DJ on college radio (you can check out my WNYU archive here, where I pair Brazilian music with its influences).
