I'm a writer based in San Francisco focusing on innovators and game changers. My work has made best-journalism-of-the-year lists at Bloomberg Businessweek and the Atlantic, and "must read" lists at the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and Foreign Policy.

Most recently, I covered technology and innovation for Fast Company. Previously, I was a producer for CNN in the Middle East and a contributing writer for San Francisco magazine. In a previous life, I worked inside tech companies in Silicon Valley, working on product teams both at startups and larger Fortune 1000s.

I will always happily hop on a plane to the far reaches of the planet with little more than a map and a camera. I’ve traveled to most of the continents in the world and have reported from the Middle East, China, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Afghanistan.

In San Francisco, I regularly hang out with my four nieces and one nephew, alternately keeping them in line, nudging them forward, and offering a release valve from whatever it is their parents are trying to teach them.
