I’m a New York-based journalist who analyzes media, politics and urban affairs. I pen features for the Columbia Journalism Review, where I formerly covered political media on staff, and The Guardian, for which I write about the changing nature of American cities. I’ve covered Congress for The Boston Globe and written for the editorial board and metro desk at Newsday. My work has also appeared in the Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post and Metro Times, Detroit’s alternative weekly.
I hold a Master of Arts degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where I studied the American political economy and wrote a thesis on housing economics and neighborhood stabilization in Detroit. I also received the Gray Fellowship for International Reporting, for which I studied military strategy, national security policy and Middle Eastern relations at Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs. I hold Bachelor of Science degrees in Journalism and Middle East Studies from Northwestern University.
Along with media and politics, I’m trying to make sense of how cities work. Hit me up at Uberti[dot]David[at]gmail.com or follow me on Twitter.
