Hi. I'm a Staff Writer at Food52 covering food and culture. I live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

I also write a lot about movies. Recent bylines: Vulture (New York Magazine), The FADER, VICE, Pitchfork, ELLE, many other places.

I used to be the Editorial Director at This., a project initially conceived ("incubated") within The Atlantic. And then it died. Got my BA at Stanford, where I studied History, Literature, and the Arts. Grew up in New Jersey. First languages were Bengali and English; now rusty on the former.
