Read my book

I'm a tech journalist with deep experience writing about transportation, with a particular focus on self-driving and electric vehicles, and other elements of the future of how we get from A to B.

My book on the history of the race to create the self-driving car, *Driven*, comes out in January 2021 from Simon & Schuster, and is now out in paperback. Check it out above.

I'm a senior editor at Insider, where I lead the transportation desk's coverage of the auto, aviation, and logistics industries.

From 2014 to 2020, I was an editor and writer at WIRED, whose transportation section I launched in 2016.

I'm also at work on a new book for WW Norton, about the wild and unseen world of product testing.
