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 Popular Science about Gene DeSantis, a regular Johnny Appleseed who has planted more than 15,000 trees over 40 years, and how his hometown of Baltimore is preserving the urban forest.
