"One of the best writers I’ve encountered, remaking the world sentence by immaculate sentence."
– Olivia Laing, author of The Lonely City and Crudo
"Like Frank O'Hara, a creative thinker who writes alongside artists, and should be regarded as a peer."
– Matt Wolf, director of Teenage and Wild Combination
Educated in Los Angeles and now based in London, I am a writer of essays — about moths, phones, searchlights, swimming pools, gay bars, closets, major museums and minor injuries. I've edited anthologies, academic books and magazines. I teach criticism at universities in the UK, and hold a position as associate lecturer at Camberwell College of Arts. I helped launch Failed States, the new journal of writing and image about place. I was shortlisted for the 2018 Fitzcarraldo Editions Essay Prize.
