I joined the Reader in November 2010 first as an intern, then as an editorial assistant. I worked for a while as a staff writer until somebody had the questionable idea to make me deputy editor, under which title I oversee the copy desk and the paper's culture section. I also criticize a lot of things—even, from time to time, in print: art, books, restaurants. I enjoy crosswords, lentil soup, and Tom Swifties.
