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 Postindustrial about Mined Minds, a coding bootcamp that aimed to turn cash-strapped Appalachians into computer programmers, which students say never happened.
