About Me

I am primarily an urban historian focusing on city planning and public policy related to low-income / public housing. My work focuses on the policy idea of supporting “individual choice” and the limits of that neoliberal policy construction. I also work as a city planning / real estate development consultant and can speak on issues related to our current city and rural development problems. I am also a co-founder of a local, grassroots group advocating for the removal of Confederate monuments in Georgia.
