Hello! If you're here, you're probably looking for details, so here you go: I'm a reporter at HuffPost. I write about climate change, the environment and big business. Prior to joining the politics team, I served as the senior business editor. One time, I interviewed Rick Ross.
Previously, I covered retail and world affairs at the International Business Times. Before that, I reported on the media industry in Los Angeles for The Wrap and, later, in New York at FishbowlNY. I got my first real gig writing about crime, fires and the occasional citywide spelling bee for The Boston Globe.
I have written for Pacific Standard, and appeared on MSNBC, FOX, SiriusXM and CBC Radio. I'm a regular guest on the BBC World Service's "Business Matters."
My journalism career started at 15 years old with an internship at The Long-Islander, a weekly newspaper founded by Walt Whitman in 1838 in Huntington, New York. Back then, I started using my middle initial in my byline to pay respects to old newspaper tradition. Admittedly, I often worry it now makes me seem pretentious. *Sigh.*
I live in Astoria, Queens, with my girlfriend, a cat named Ashitaka, and a jungle of plants.
