I work for The New York Times.
I report, shoot, edit and write stories about anything from economics to matrimony.
I am most interested in stories that dissect human behavior in all its inexplicable glory.
I eat a lot of ramen. I take life lessons from old Golden Girls episodes.

Believe it or not, sometimes I do get a little serious.
I have an intense interest in housing. I grew up in affordable housing inside of a very middle class town. It was, without intention, an interesting example of a town where housing prices are mixed and where a diverse community can end up benefiting everyone in the long run. More on that later, but here’s the more serious stuff.
