I am a Brooklyn-based writer and editor, and I teach journalism at Hunter College of the City University of New York. My work has appeared in The Daily Beast, Forbes, GQ, Mother Jones, Runner's World, The Point, and many other publications.
My 2021 story for GQ about a group of Ethiopian runners living in the Bronx, "The Marathon Men Who Can't Go Home," was named one of the Best Features of the Year by Longreads. My features for Runner's World have been the cover stories of the print magazine in the U.S., Spain, the U.K., and South Korea.
I have ghostwritten two books, both with the late web designer and filmmaker Hillman Curtis. Both have been taught at design and filmmaking schools across the country. I have written extensively about film, particularly documentary, and taught college courses in film history and theory.
I am also the editor at an international business intelligence and political risk consultancy based in Midtown Manhattan, where I work with analysts, executives, ambassadors, and others to craft actionable essays and reports on geopolitical and economic matters affecting emerging markets.
At Hunter, I teach magazine and feature writing, journalism as literature, social justice journalism, and news literacy in a digital age, a course designed to create a more critically minded media consumer and to combat disinformation.
