Kelsey Keith is Curbed's first editor-in-chief. She was raised in Tennessee and lived in New York for 13 years, before moving to DC in 2019. She joined Vox Media in February 2015 from Dwell magazine.

Kelsey directs all editorial operations for Curbed, with a special interest in making architecture relatable, cities approachable, streets walkable, rooms beautiful, and buildings useful. She strongly believes that if you love where you live, you should critique it in equal doses as championing it.
