I’m a journalist and author with experience covering architecture and urban planning, policy, and politics. I’m currently an editor at Bloomberg Businessweek and previously worked at CityLab. Prior to that, I was a freelance journalist contributing to publications including The Washington Post and The Atlantic. My book Radical Suburbs, on experimental suburban communities, was published in April 2019.

I have a Ph.D. in literature from the University of Bristol in England and an M.A. from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, and live in Silver Spring, Md.
