Urban Policy

For the past two years I have written weekly about urban policy initiatives across the country for the publication Next City. But I’ve long loved to write about how cities work. Topics I am passionate about include public transit, bicycling infrastructure, housing and community engagement. I’m an avid cyclist, as you’ll see in the photo below.

My reporting on Robert Moses and the Decline of the NYC Subway System earned me a GANYC Apple Award for Excellence in Reporting.
