I am a writer and editor in Boston. Currently I'm deputy opinion editor at the Boston Globe, where I'm a member of the editorial board and commission pieces for the Ideas section.
Before that I was executive editor of MIT Technology Review, where I helped lead our overall editorial coverage and worked with fantastic writers on big ideas. We were nominated twice for the National Magazine Award in general excellence. I oversaw big editorial packages like 10 Breakthrough Technologies, 35 Innovators Under 35, and 50 Smartest Companies. In 2017 I conceived and edited a special issue on artificial intelligence.
In 2017 and 2018 I served as the founding editor of NEO.LIFE, a publication begun by one of the founders of Wired to chronicle the ways technology is changing biology. In 2019 I edited an anthology about the future of humans.
As a freelancer I've contributed to MIT Technology Review, OneZero, Elemental, the Boston Globe, Bostonia, and Protocol.
Once upon a time I was technology and media editor for The Associated Press, after stints as a telecom and technology beat writer, the Silicon Valley correspondent, a national news editor, and a general-assignment reporter in Chicago.
In 2004-05, I was a Knight Fellow in Science Journalism at MIT.
