Hi, I’m Mike De Socio.

I’m an independent journalist based in upstate New York, telling stories about cities, climate change and the LGBTQ+ community.

My path in journalism has taken me through almost every part of the newsroom, where I’ve worked as a photographer, writer, reporter and editor. Now, I lean into my range of skills to provide well-written, beautifully-photographed stories that make an impact.

My work has been published in Bloomberg, The Guardian, Fortune, DigBoston, HuffPost, Bicycling Magazine and beyond.
