I cover city life for The New York Times and its transit for VICE. I write on cities and cultures elsewhere. In the past, I’ve been a visiting fellow for the Center for an Urban Future, a NYC-based think tank.
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.
