About

I’m a NYC-based reporter covering climate change, housing, and inequality for New York Focus and other outlets.

I also work the news desk at France 24; edit Dissent magazine’s Belabored podcast; and tweet on and off @colinreads.

From 2013–18, I was a staff editor at Dissent; after that, I spent a little more than a year in Paris, where I joined the France 24 newsroom, before returning to New York in summer 2020.

In May–June 2021, I was a fellow at the Metcalf Institute’s Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists.
