Aevitas Creative Management
19 West 21st St, Ste 501, New York, NY 10010

I'm a senior literary agent who represents critically acclaimed and award-winning fiction and nonfiction writers; my list includes journalists, academics, historians, scientists, and musicians, among others.

I'm always on the lookout for fresh narrative nonfiction in the areas of popular science, big ideas, history, humor, pop culture, reportage, and what I like to call memoir plus (not quite straight memoir, but not quite straight narrative nonfiction either), in addition to voice-driven literary fiction with a bold plot and fresh, imaginative characters. I'm excited by strong female and underrepresented voices, the strange and speculative, and projects that ignite cultural conversation.

Prior to joining Aevitas in 2015, I was an agent at The Zoë Pagnamenta Agency, where I also handled contracts and foreign rights.

Originally from New Jersey, I graduated summa cum laude as a University Honors Scholar and Founders’ Day Award recipient from New York University, with a BA in Classics and English literature.


Aevitas Creative Management is a full-service literary agency representing high quality talent of every stripe, including award winning authors, thinkers, and public figures. Formed through the merger of Kuhn Projects and Zachary Shuster Harmsworth, our authors have won the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, Guggenheim Fellowship, National Book Critics Circle Award, Financial Times, and McKinsey Business Book of the Year, PEN/Hemingway, Pushcart Prize, Whiting Writer’s Award, Nobel Peace Prize, as well as the Tony, Grammy, Emmy, and Academy awards.

We offer our clients unusually meaningful editorial guidance and inspiration, and serve as their advocates throughout the publishing process. Our mission is to help cultivate and promote stories, expertise, and insights that are timely and timeless; that are innovative and necessary; that spark debate and challenge conventional wisdom; that enlighten and entertain; that inspire meaningful conversation and propose groundbreaking ideas; that test and expand on literary conventions; and that bring people together, influence the culture in positive ways, and enable voices that might otherwise be silenced to be heard.
