I’ve covered Congress for The Boston Globe and written for the editorial board and metro desk at Newsday. My work has also appeared in the Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post and Metro Times, Detroit’s alternative weekly.

I hold a Master of Arts degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where I received the Gray Fellowship for International Reporting. My studies there included post-9/11 military strategy, international security policy and the American political economy. I wrote my thesis on housing economics and neighborhood stabilization in Detroit. I also hold Bachelor of Science degrees in Journalism and Middle East Studies from Northwestern University.

Along with media and politics, I’m trying to make sense of how cities work. Hit me up at Uberti[dot]David[at] or follow me on Twitter
