About

m02-cropHi. I’m a staff writer at Yahoo Finance, where I cover sports business, tech, and other fun stuff. I have a weekly video series called Sportsbook.

Before Yahoo, I spent five years at Fortune, where I wrote magazine profiles on companies like DraftKings, Adidas, Yelp, Anheuser-Busch InBev, and MasterCard, and people like Leigh Steinberg, Louis Freeh, Will.i.am, Dwayne Johnson, David Chang, George Foreman and Cal Ripken. I also co-managed the 40 Under 40 franchise.

I’m the author of Zooma book about young entrepreneurs. I serve on the board of the Deadline Club. And I’m on TV occasionally, at Golf Channel, BBC, CBS This Morning and CBS New York.

I’ve also written for Sports Illustrated, The Guardian, Vice, Time, Salon, NPR.org, Entrepreneur, Deadspin, The Wall Street Journal, New York Post, New York Daily News, The Daily Beast, LitHub, The Awl, The Hairpin, The Morning News, The Millions, The Classical, Flavorpill, PopMatters, The Rumpus, Berfrois &more.

I went to college at Middlebury, grad school at Columbia.

That’s everything, for now— bye.
