Brock Keeling connects people to their city, the good and the bad, by writing and reporting about San Francisco and beyond. As the editor at Curbed SF, he draws attention to architecture, transit policies, civic design, the housing crisis, gentrification, YIMBY-versus-NIMBY battles, and how technology affects our cities.
Before joining Curbed SF, Brock was the culture editor at 7x7 Magazine and the editor at SFist. Brock's work has also been published in San Francisco Magazine. He was named blogger of the year by SF Weekly in 2010.
Brock has lived in San Francisco for 20 years, living in the South of Market neighborhood. He's a self-described and proud "militant pedestrian."
