I live in Cleveland, OH. I grew up in Maryland, and Washington, D.C., will forever and always be my home. I spent some time in San Francisco, but I don’t miss it.
I’ve worked for global design and construction firms, a nonprofit, a startup, and an alt-weekly. I’ve written, marketed, communicated, researched, planned, project-managed, art-directed, outreached, and organized too many things in my career to count. The best of them, though, relate to transportation, urban design, sustainability, and land use, which are the areas about which I care the most. I love municipal regulations and politics and believe in addressing structural issues.
I like my cat and reading books on my porch.
I have a Tumblr, a Twitter, and an Instagram, among other things. I started this blog with the intent of writing longer, more thoughtful pieces about things that don’t fit into the platforms I use regularly. That hasn’t happened. It’s a personal blog on a good day, and in my dreams makes up for the journalism career I started, but didn’t complete.
Say hello here.
