As I was saying before here, I'm a journalist, writer, activist, and a bunch of other things. I'm based in Philadelphia but also kind of live in New York City, where I grew up and where my family still lives. My work focuses on the intersection of the environment (both built and natural) and human lives. I also write essays about issues that are important to me (mainly social justice and LGBTQ rights).
Journalism is the only profession that allows me to enter people's living rooms and ask them their deepest secrets without being immediately kicked out. That's why I'm a journalist. I also like convincing people of things, and writing seems to be a pretty good way to do that.
My book How to Kill a City, a narrative journey through gentrification in four U.S. cities, is available for sale. My publisher is Nation Books/Perseus/Hachette (the book imprint of The Nation magazine).
My work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Republic, The Guardian, New York Magazine, Al Jazeera America, Wired, Fusion, BuzzFeed, Vice and many other places. I co-founded Study Hall, a coworking space for non-fiction writers, in the fall of 2015 with a mission to build community within the freelance world.
I'm available for assignments, consulting, content and editing work. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
