Commentary, Fiction & Art
Arts & Ideas
I've explored arts, social justice movements, urbanism and technology across the U.S. over the past 15+ years. Today, I'm focused on commentary and profiles that celebrate the use of art and culture in expanding what's possible in DC neighborhoods and around the world.

Make DC Weird
A conversation and a provocation about the city we love, the city we have, the city we want. The phrase "MAKE DC WEIRD" inspires questions and dialogue about those proudly unique things we want to celebrate with our neighbors, and about the role of arts and culture in a changing DC.
Proceeds are dedicated to commissioning new works by DC artists engaged in this conversation.
