I write and think about cities and cultures for outlets like The New York Times, VICE, and CityLab, with a focus on transit, mobility, and open space. I am also a research fellow at Center for an Urban Future, a NYC-based policy organization, where I’ve studied New York’s parks and libraries. Previously, I’ve taught undergraduate reporting at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, my alma mater. And come autumn, I’ll be pursuing an MSc at UCL’s Bartlett School of Planning, in transport and city planning.
Abroad, I've reported from Cuba, Sweden, Mexico, London, and also, Rio de Janeiro (that beautiful city behind me) throughout the 2016 Summer Olympics.
All about urbanism, infrastructure, and making the world a more efficient, equitable place. I also call Queens home.
