I’m a Chicago-based freelance pop culture critic and journalist who covers comic books, television, and theater. I have written for The A.V. Club (where I was twice nominated for the Best Comics-Related Journalism/Periodical Eisner Award in 2012 and 2017, winning in 2017), The Los Angeles Times, Vox.com, NPR Books, Rolling Stone, The Verge, and VICE. I also write TV recaps and reviews for The A.V. Club and Vulture.
I was a staff theater writer for Time Out Chicago and have written dance and theater content for Chicago Theater Beat, Chicago Tribune, and Chicago Reader. I was the dramaturg of Jackalope Theater’s Prowess, a new drama addressing the epidemic of violence in Chicago, which was nominated for four Jeff Awards, including Best Production and New Play, winning for New Play. I am also the founder and co-mentor of The Key, an arts criticism mentorship program for Chicago youth. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
