About me

I am a senior editor at Basic Books, where I acquire and publish primarily in history and have worked since 2015. Basic’s website will tell you more about the books I’ve acquired, edited, and published recently.

Previously, from 2011 through 2015, I worked at Harvard University Press, where I acquired and edited a number of prizewinning books, among them 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 also a graduate of Harvard, where I concentrated in history and literature. I live and work in New York City and the Hudson Valley.
