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

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 farmer Jake Misch, startup Pivot Bio, and Silicon Valley’s quest to make self-fertilizing corn — in order to stop a New Jersey-size dead zone from killing all aquatic life in the Gulf of Mexico.
