CLIPS

This page exists because I used to work for the best alternative weekly in the world, Washington City Paper, and I supposed that I’d stay in journalism. I didn’t. I do still freelance occasionally, and writing has been a cornerstone of my job no matter what I’ve done.

Professionally, I was the voice of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association’s blog, Quick Release, from 2012-2014, and the primary producer of content for Remix’s blog, Planning Better Transit, in 2015. I’m still proud of being behind things like this.

Since moving to Cleveland in 2016, I’ve been able to speak more about what I do, and about the systemic factors that impact transportation and planning. Most recently, in May 2018, I was on Strong Towns’ The Week Ahead podcast, yattering about dockless bikeshare. You can also hear me on The CLEcast with Clevelanders For Public Transit organizer Akshai Singh about race, equity, and land use; on Strong Towns’ webcast about invisible bike riders; at Strong Towns’ 2017 summit on why bikeshare won’t save your city; and at Cleveland 2030 District’s Building Education Series on alternative transportation. In December 2017, I delighted in being a debater at Turncoats D.C. #4, “Save History From Preservation.”

I’ve also worked on a few grassroots policy reports: Bike Cleveland’s An Active Transportation Vision For Cleveland (July 2017) and Clevelanders For Public Transit’s Fair Fares campaign (February 2018). For the former, I researched and wrote major sections of the document; I also laid it out and copy edited it. For the latter, I provided some very high-level advising at the onset and merely made it look nice on the page before the campaign kicked off.

Perhaps you might also wish to subscribe to my newsletter, which I send on the last day of each month. It skitters between things that people are used to me talking about (housing, transportation, gentrification, cities), things that I care about personally (music, skincare, food), and the things I am consuming (books, art, movies). I also always include a photo of my cat, who is very cute.
