Salt Lake City Urbanism

New city (sort of)… new career… new blog!  SLCUrbanist will be my new personal space to explore urban development, policy, and Salt Lake City’s local news and politics.  I’m excited to get started!  You can check out my previous blog to see what kinds of things I have written about before, and you can read some of my more recent writings at,, and  I’m thinking that I’ll keep the same Twitter site, at least for now, so that I don’t alienate my previous followers, but I’ll also post on my new one.  And, of course, you can always leave me comments or contact me directly if you are interested in my writings, want to comment on a particular post or subject, or if you just want to introduce yourself and say hi. 

I look forward to these new beginnings.
