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 Wired, The Washington Post Magazine, Men's Health, The Atlantic, Fortune, Popular ScienceCurbed, Outside, Politico Magazine, New York Magazine, and elsewhere. Occasionally I write for the Los Angeles Review of Books.

  • Latest feature: in Popular Science about Mark Quartiano, better known as Mark the Shark, a man who was hunting sharks, before Spielberg's "Jaws," and has killed about 50,000 of them over 40 years.
