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 that the future is either socialism or barbarism. I am particularly interested in technology policy: pushing back, thoughtfully, against the “sharing economy” and other things coming out of Silicon Valley, and connecting the dots between them. In general, I like to look at the political economy of neoliberalism in different ways.
Apart from the typical stuff, I like urbanism (and small streets — that’s 12th Pl NW, D.C. above), thoughtful video games, cooking, 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. During my time in college, I studied in Denmark for a semester (and although I think Denmark does a lot of things well compared to the U.S., it isn’t perfect by any means).
