Select Writing

Since 2018 I’ve been writing music related articles for T online and a few other outlets including the clothing brand Noah. Working with the label Matador I commissioned Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus to write an original song for our “America 2024” issue and interviewed him about the process. I most recently interviewed Kim Gordon and created a “Summer Entertaining” playlist by reaching out to creatives including chef Angela Dimayuga, designer Martine Rose, and musican Perfume Genius.

“Drugs,” 2016. Co-designed and published with Seth Zucker (For The Common Good). After reading about the existence of an unpublished play written by Glenn O’Brien and Cookie Muller in Chloe Griffin’s Edgewise and in Mallory Curley’s A Cookie Mueller Encyclopedia, we reached out to Glenn O'Brien to discuss the possibility of publishing the play in book form. Glenn was receptive to our proposal and agreed to write a framing foreword. We visited his apartment, pouring over his bookshelves and Basquiat-painted coffee machine and got to work.

We organized a launch reading at Anthology Film Archives with director Josh Safdi (Good Time, Uncut Gems), & Leo Fitzpatrick (Kids, The Wire) reading the lead roles.

Following the release, we collaborated with legendary designer Raf Simons on his upcoming FW18 collection, which was inspired in part by “Drugs.” All images below feature Raf’s designs inspired by our work and are sourced from various outlets.
