Hello! I’m Asad Syrkett (ser-ket), an editor and design journalist based in Brooklyn.
Currently, I'm the Deputy Editor at Curbed, a Vox Media brand. I spend my days managing a five-person team of senior reporters and editors, running special projects (including weekly original home tours, bi-annual shopping guides, and Curbed’s Travel vertical), and thinking about the best ways to showcase our journalism on an ever-expanding number of digital platforms. Previously, I was on the editorial staff at Architectural Digest, Architectural Record, and Interview magazines.
I’ve co-hosted two seasons of a weekly podcast called The Curbed Appeal (you can listen to all 20 episodes on iTunes), appeared on a panel at Design Miami, hosted a four-part video series on design history, moderated an official SXSW roundtable, and been a talking head on Canadian public radio. In 2017, I was a Folio: magazine 30 Under 30 honoree. You can take a look at my full résumé here.
