I’m a writer and technology journalist living in San Francisco. I currently write for The Verge as a reporter covering Silicon Valley, gaming, artificial intelligence, and other random items related to the future and all the fun and fascinating aspects of thinking about it. I also enjoy writing about TV and film from time to time.
I like to focus on the ways technology is changing how we live, think and interact. I'm interested in how social networks are reshaping how we consume and transmit information (as well as read and share news), how virtual and augmented reality are failing and succeeding against the expectations of science fiction, anything and everything related to artificial intelligence, and the business models behind selling and pricing art in the age of limitless supply. I have a focus on breaking technology news, feature writing, and in-depth analysis on companies and business trends.
Prior to joining The Verge, I wrote for CNET News as a reporter covering Microsoft, the game industry, and technology that you wear. I got my start in tech journalism as an editorial assistant at the tech blog ReadWrite, where I did various things ranging from covering social networks to posting a ton of killer GIFs to Facebook. And before ReadWrite, I was a science writer at Brookhaven National Lab where I got to write about nanotechnology and biophysics and the probing of the universe by America’s one and only proton-smashing particle accelerator.
I was also part of the original editorial team at the startup Flipboard, where I curated stories for the social magazine mobile app as part of a global news desk. That team continues to this day as the primary engine driving the company's most popular and widely read sections.
I graduated from Stony Brook University in New York in 2012 with a degree in journalism and a minor in philosophy. The plan is to continue combining hard thinking and cool storytelling in the Bay Area for as long as San Francisco rent prices allow.
