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.

My first book The City Authentic: How the Attention Economy Builds Urban America can be purchased 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.
