I love journalism—and, when done right, believe it’s critically important to a functioning democracy. I think media more broadly is worth actively engaging in, and I enjoy using it to inform, educate, and entertain audiences across platforms. And I know great storytelling can get people to care about subjects and engage with ideas they might otherwise ignore.
Currently an independent publishing consultant providing strategic advice and editorial services to a variety of clients, I was previously the editor-in-chief of the award-winning Pacific Standard magazine. Before that, I worked as an editor, writer, and digital director at The Atlantic, Outside, Slate, Texas Monthly, Encyclopaedia Britannica, and other publications. I was also the first editor-in-chief of Atlas Obscura.
