I’m an Atlanta-based journalist and author. Most of my work focuses on urban planning and development, civil and human rights, and social and economic justice. But I make the occasional foray into something less serious, such as riding the Atlanta Streetcar or spending the weekend in a 135-square-foot SCADpad micro apartment.

With more than two decades of experience in journalism, I presently work as deputy editor of Atlanta magazine, teach part-time at the University of Georgia, and am at work on my fourth book.
