Her works are published, performed, and exhibited throughout the world, including multiple solo museum shows in New York City and Berlin. She is the author The Hope Of Floating Has Carried Us This Far (Coffeehouse Press 2015), and writes for Tin House, Guernica, Conjunctions, the Kenyon Review, and Gulf Coast. She lives in Brooklyn.
