I'm currently acting deputy editor at the Reader, where over the years I've edited features, news and politics, culture and the performing arts, and more. From 2005 to 2012 I edited the Reader's Food & Drink section. I started as a proofer in 2000, prior to which I was a philosophy professor at Ohio State University.
