I grew up and went to school in Vermont. I worked in finance for nearly five years before deciding to pursue things I found more interesting. I now manage a nonprofit in Ethiopia, dissect game theory, and train for marathons (#3 will be Boston in April).
My work has appeared in other media, including the New York Times and on television. I write about the city’s changing neighborhood boundaries at Curbed.
About the project
I plan to visit each of the 80 Brooklyn neighborhoods listed by the Department of City Planning, chosen randomly. See my first post for more details.
Since the end of 2012, I’ve worked on the original project sporadically, favoring general-interest writing about Brooklyn and livable streets. Fear not, though: the hat will make a comeback in 2014.
I tweet (@TheWeeklyNabe) and post pictures on Instagram (also @TheWeeklyNabe).
Of note: I’m not a fan of the word “nabe” – or for that matter, most abbrevs – but I needed a catchy name for this blog, and I thought the spelling “neighb” would be even more obnoxious. I’m aware that odds are I’ll eventually come to like it.
