I’m a writer and journalist based in Queens, NY.  I cover public policy, including prisons and policing, housing, homelessness and harm reduction. I like investigative reporting but also deep policy analysis and essays that envision possible worlds. I’ve written for The Guardian, The Baffler, Village Voice, The Verge, Pacific Standard, The Appeal and more. I’m a former Open City Fellow and Witness Fellow at the Asian American Writers Workshop and a former Equitable Cities Fellow at Next City. I also write fiction and poetry and from 2016-2018 I hosted Final Fantasy Reading Series, a literary performance series based in Crown Heights in Brooklyn. I have a newsletter called “House of Tomorrow” where you can read more in-depth analysis and find out what I’ve been reading and listening to.
