Prior to joining CSS, he was at the Brookings Institution and on the faculties of the New School for Social Research and the LBJ School of Public Affairs.
“Affordable housing is a critical issue in the lives of low-income New Yorkers. Working at shaping government policies and programs—at all levels—to address these basic needs is challenging and purposeful.”
