Hi, I’m Mike De Socio.

I’m a freelance journalist, writer and photographer based in upstate New York, telling stories about cities, climate change and the LGBTQ+ community.

My work has been published in Slate, BloombergDigBoston, USA Today, HuffPost, Bicycling Magazine and beyond. I cut my teeth growing up in New Jersey — reporting on Hurricane Sandy and the Jersey shore.
