Who?

I’m a freelance journalist based near Washington, D.C. Subscribe to my newsletter: ajzaleski.substack.com.

Mostly I write about technology, science, and business. And I write profiles on people who do, and don't do, work in those fields. My articles have been published in Bloomberg Businessweek, Popular Science, Wired, The Washington Post Magazine, Men's Health, The Atlantic, Fortune, MediumCurbed, Outside, Politico Magazine, New York, and elsewhere. Occasionally I write for the Los Angeles Review of Books.

  • Latest feature: in OneZero about Tanner Collins, whose brain literally changed after one-sixth of it was removed at age 6 and the scientific quest to understand why.
