Writer and Editor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Twitter | Personal email |

Previously, I was executive editor at Philadelphia Weekly and managing editor for the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal, a higher ed think tank in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I’m also co-founder of expatalachians, an Appalachian-focused journalism project. There, I write about culture, economics, and politics.

On occasion, I write about culture and central/eastern Europe for Devolution Review.

My writing has appeared in 100 Days in Appalachia, The American Conservative, Front Porch Republic, Townhall, the Prague Post, the Carolina Journal, and the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs.
