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

After moreĀ  than two decades in journalism, I now work as editorial adviser for The Red & Black, the independent student news organization serving the University of Georgia community, and teach part-time at UGA. In addition to freelance writing, I’m at work on my fourth book.
