About

I am a writer and designer interested in the place where those two disciplines meet.

My most recent publication is The Silent History, the first major exploratory, interactive novel designed specifically for the iPad and iPhone. I am also the author of the short story collection Super Flat Times. My stories have been anthologized in The Anchor Book of New American Short Stories, The Apocalypse Reader, and Dzanc's Best of the Web 2009. My writing has appeared in McSweeney's, Conjunctions, The Believer, The Columbia Journal, Fence, and Guernica. I am also a contributor to The Organist, the monthly podcast of The Believer.

I am also a designer at Harmonix, a video game studio in Cambridge, MA, where I create diagrams and experience walkthrough documents, observe and react to user/player feedback, and occasionally work on narrative design.
