I’m inordinately excited to have my first ever website go live. Expect plenty of updates on this site about my latest comings and goings.

For the business section of the New York Times, I wrote about new elevated parks underway across the country. No longer does New York City have the only cool park set on an old railroad trestle (High Line), now Philadelphia, Chicago and St. Louis are working on plans to fix up their old railway trestles and tracks for parkland. Cities get to spiff up an old eyesore, improve a neighborhood and get new open space.

I also was lucky enough to land a package of dream assignments: Review a brand new hotel and entertainment district in my hometown of Austin for the New York Times. Sign me up! You can see those two stories here and here.
