Literary Non-Fiction

I am a writer of fiction and literary nonfiction, as well as a cultural anthropologist. My work primarily concerns the 2010 Haiti earthquake and its aftermath, including humanitarian aid, the displacement crisis, and the persistence of everyday life after unprecedented disaster. My writing has appeared in Salon, Slate, and other venues, and my first YA novel, Hold Tight, Don’t Let Go, was published by Abrams/Amulet in 2015. From 2014 to 2019, I also created a trilingual digital archive of Haiti’s first independent radio station, Radio Haïti-Inter.
