About me

I am a senior editor at Basic Books, where I acquire and publish primarily in history. Click here for more details about my current work at Basic.

Previously, from 2011 through 2015, I worked at Harvard University Press, where I acquired and edited prizewinning books including Elizabeth Hinton’s From the War on Poverty to the War on Crime and Matthew Karp’s This Vast Southern Empire.

I received a Ph.D. in history from Yale, where my training focused on twentieth-century U.S. politics and culture; you can read more about my dissertation here. I’m a 2005 graduate of Harvard, where I concentrated in History and Literature. I live and work in New York City.
