Brooklyn-based writer.

I write (mostly) about affordable housing, criminal justice, and NYC nooks & crannies.

Originally from western Mass., I studied Sociology in Ohio, and from there set out straight on a zig-zagged path including stints in Chicago, Marrakesh, Portland (right coast), and Brooklyn.

Recent recipient of the New York Press Club Award for Feature Reporting for this piece, co-authored with Vinnie Rotondaro. 

 Also currently working as a research assistant for a forthcoming oral history of political activism during the years 1969-1970.
