2011 Headshot

I’m a staff writer for Columbia Journalism Review, where I report on media and politics. I also occasionally pen features on urban issues for The Guardian and edit amNewYork. 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 Journalism School, where I received the Gray Fellowship for International Reporting. My studies included post-9/11 military strategy, Third World security policy and U.S. foreign policy in the Persian Gulf. I wrote my thesis on neighborhood stabilization and housing policy in Detroit. I also hold Bachelor of Science degrees in Journalism and Middle East Studies from Northwestern University.

Along with media and politics, I love baseball, TV dramas and hip-hop. Hit me up at Uberti[dot]David[at]gmail.com or follow me on Twitter. My full author archive at CJR is here
