I’m a journalist and author with long experience covering architecture and urban planning, climate change, and politics. Now an editor at Bloomberg Green, I was previously on staff at Bloomberg Businessweek, CityLab, and Architect, and have contributed to publications including The Washington Post and The Atlantic. My book Radical Suburbs: Experimental Living on the Fringes of the American City, on utopian suburban communities, came out in 2019.

I have a Ph.D. in literature from the University of Bristol and an M.A. from the University of St. Andrews (UK), and live with my family in Silver Spring, Md.
