About me

I'm a journalist in Brooklyn covering a range of political and economic issues. My work has appeared in The New Republic, the Washington Post, Slate, CityLab, Foreign Policy, Jewish Currents, Vice, NBC News THINK, and Business Insider, where I am a Contributing Opinion Writer. Before freelancing, I was a News Producer on Netflix's Patriot Act, a reporter for The Trace, and a fact-checker for New York Magazine.

This website is a home for deeper and more idiosyncratic dives into the topics I cover in the above publications, as well as personal riffs. Subscribe for a mix of urban political economy, history, and duck cooking tips.
