My name is David. I’m a Lecturer in the Geography and Planning department at University at Albany, SUNY and director of the Globalization Studies program. I also serve as the officer for contingent faculty for my union and I’m a proud delegate to the Troy Area Labor Council.

I have my first book The City Authentic: How the Attention Economy Builds Urban America coming out in April 2023 by University of California Press. Preorder the book here.

My work has appeared in Real Life, The Baffler, Protean, Strikewave, e-flux architecture, The Guardian, and Dwell. A longer list of my writing is here.
