I am a freelance writer and editor in Boston.
I've been 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. Currently I serve as Neo.Life's editor at large. Look for our anthology about the future of humans in early 2020.
I remain a contributor at MIT Technology Review and also have written lately for OneZero, Elemental, the Boston Globe, and Bostonia. I delivered a keynote address about AI at the Innovation Research Interchange's Springboard conference in 2018.
Once upon a time I was technology and media editor for The Associated Press, after stints as a telecom and technology beat writer and as the Silicon Valley correspondent. In 2004-05, I was a Knight Fellow in Science Journalism at MIT.
