Hi there! I’m Jim, a journalist, recovering attorney and ersatz nonprofit consultant who spends most of his days covering the transportation beat for PlanPhilly, biking around town, and playing rugby every now and then.
I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in ‘08 with a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, and earned a JD from Georgetown Law in ‘11. I then worked for a large law firm in Philadelphia for two years, hating nearly every second of it (the frequent free lunches and sizable paychecks were nice). My law licenses in Pennsylvania and New Jersey are currently inactive.
