I’m a writer based in San Francisco.
My work — a mix of narrative-driven reporting, visuals, and data analysis — explores the extraordinary in the ordinary. I’m particularly interested in the process of invention, strange obsessions, and the microeconomics of subcultures.
Currently, I run Sunday features for The Hustle, a business and technology newsletter I helped grow to 1m+ subscribers. Previously, I was a staff writer at Vox.com and Priceonomics. My written work has appeared in The Atlantic, Time, Longreads, and elsewhere; I’ve also dabbled in radio (Marketplace, NPR, Slate) and video (The Discovery Channel, Vox).
Outside of writing, I make music, travel, run, and volunteer.
