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 MIT Technology Review about Tim Hwang, the 26-year-old founder of D.C.-based startup FiscalNote, who is democratizing the data of dealmaking and lobbying in Washington — or is he?
