I am a journalist and urbanist in New York City. I’m presently looking to blaze a new career path in Communications. My articles have been published in Citylab, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Next City, and elsewhere. I was editor-in-chief of CityLimits.org, and associate editor at the Forward. I recently taught journalism classes at City College of CUNY. I’ve contributed to a variety of neighborhood preservation efforts in Manhattan, and directed and produced two site-specific short films. I have a BA in English Literature from the University of Virginia.
