Curious for a living

I’m a nonfiction writer and filmmaker based in Portland, OR. I focus on science, tech, business, and design, with occasional diversions.

Here is how I once described my job to a room of pre-schoolers:

I’ve written for Bloomberg Businessweek, Wired, Scientific American, Quanta, Fast Company, New York, MIT Technology Review, MIT Spectrum, Kellogg Insight, The Atlantic, and others.

A feature I wrote about the unsolved P versus NP question in mathematics was anthologized in The Best American Science and Nature Writing book series.
