I’m editorial director for the Portfolio and Sentinel imprints at Penguin Random House, where I acquire and edit a wide range of idea-driven nonfiction, narrative, biography, memoir, investigative journalism, and prescriptive books.

You can find a more up-to-date list of my acquisitions and my professional contact info on Publishers Marketplace. 

Before publishing took over my life I taught ESL in Salamanca and Madrid, read lots of Terry Pratchett, went to an international high school in Athens, Greece, and studied sociology and public health at Brown University in Providence, RI. Currently I’m enjoying life as a Brooklyn stereotype in Greenpoint, where I reside with my husband and our rescue dog, a deaf Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Ruby Roux.
