Welcome to my website! I write essays and criticism about urbanism, history, technology, and art. I have been at the forefront of covering nationwide policy debates on land use and zoning, and the emergence of micromobility (or little vehicles.)  Please peruse my clips, from CityLab, The Atlantic, The Nation, The Baffler, and elsewhere.

I am currently working on a book based on my recent piece in The Urbanist called A Field Guide to California Urbanism
