In doses of varyingly modest degrees, I am an editor, writer, and educator living in Chicago, Illinois. I am enduringly affable, certifiably tireless, and deeply detail-oriented. In a boy band, I would be the quiet one—my above-average reserve perceived instead as mystique. I earned a PhD from the Department of English at Saint Louis University, where I also taught courses in writing, literature, and film. More recently, I was the Managing Editor of the Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St. Louis, Missouri. My writing and editing interests include art, music, and culture, although like many recovering academics, I am drawn to and interested in anything that has to do with words.
