John writes and thinks about cities and cultures for outlets like The New York Times, VICE, and CityLab, with a focus on transit, mobility, and open space.
He is also a research fellow at Center for an Urban Future, a NYC-based policy organization, where he’s studied New York’s parks and libraries.
Previously, he taught undergraduate reporting at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, his alma mater. And come fall 2019, he’ll be pursuing an MSc at UCL’s Bartlett School of Planning, in transport and city planning.
Abroad, he has reported from Cuba, Sweden, Mexico, London, and also, Rio de Janeiro (that beautiful city behind him) throughout the 2016 Summer Olympics.
He’s all about urbanism, infrastructure, and making the world a more efficient, equitable place. For now, he also calls Queens home.
