Writing and thinking about cities and cultures for outlets like The New York Times, VICE, and CityLab, with a focus on transit, mobility, and open space. Research fellow for Center for an Urban Future, a NYC-based policy organization, where I’ve studied New York’s parks and libraries. And teaching undergraduate reporting at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, my alma mater.
Abroad, I've reported from Cuba, Sweden, Mexico, London, and also, Rio de Janeiro (that beautiful city behind me) throughout the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Into urbanism, infrastructure, and making the world a more efficient, equitable place. I also call Queens, NY, home.
