I grew up in northwest New Jersey, a rural community quickly incorporating an intensifying suburban expansion, protected by a kind family of warmth and privilege. My studies at Temple University brought me to Philadelphia, a big urban city with a complex of defeatism and ten million other reasons for the young and curious to devote themselves to it. I have intense interest in government, urban politics, travel, and stories of community and humanity. In my youth, I studied in West Africa, lived in Japan, and traveled through Eastern China and Western Europe, all on my own, with pen in hand and eyes wide open. Read about other experiences here.
