reviews & press

Dazed magazine review article of "Personal Ties" by Amy Touchette. I wrote a personal essay narrative that was included in the book. Upon the review of the new release, I was quoted several times for how accurately i captured the transition of BedStuy from old school NY grit to present day gentrification.
