Why Detroit?


Well, well. My most requested video ever has just gone live.

I was hesitant to make a video about Detroit, because (1) even though I spend most of my time there, I'm still not a true resident, and (2) even if I lived there, it will never be my home. The last thing I want to do is come across as an appropriator, as a culture vulture, or as someone who is ignorant to real issues such as gentrification and poverty.

But since you asked...

I'm excited to share my thoughts on the city that I have fallen so deeply in love with. It's exciting to me when I read comments that tell me I've inspired them to move to, to visit, to experience Detroit, even if just for a little bit.
