I’m Kevin and I live in Washington, D.C. I sometimes write, work on projects, and do things I like around the city. This website serves a few different purposes: an introduction to me, a writing space, and a place for me to keep track of things I care about.
I currently work at Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR). In the past, I’ve worked in climate change/environmental protection and as a bicycle mechanic.
I’m interested in working toward a world that’s fair and equitable, and I think the future is either socialism or barbarism. Right now, I am particularly interested in pushing back against the “sharing economy” and related things coming out of Silicon Valley. In general, I like to look at the political economy of neoliberalism in various ways.
Apart from the typical stuff, I like urbanism (and small streets — that’s 12th Pl NW, D.C. above), intentional communities, bikes, thoughtful video games, cooking, running, and biking.
I’m originally from around Hartford, Connecticut and studied at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa where I got my degree in Biological Chemistry and Political Science. (I’m still interested in both but, to be honest, I would probably major something different if I chose now.) During my time in college, I studied abroad in Denmark, and although I think the Danes do a lot of things well, I have no illusions about the supposed superiority of their society.
