Hi! I’m a senior writer at Yahoo Finance, where I cover sports business, bitcoin, big tech, media, and other fun stuff. At Yahoo, I also host a podcast called Sportsbook, a live morning show called Morning Meeting, and a daily 1-minute video series called Business + Coffee.

Before Yahoo, I spent 5+ 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, Cal Ripken, and Gary Player. I also co-managed the 40 Under 40 franchise.

I’m the author of Zooma 2013 book about notable young entrepreneurs. I serve on the board of the Deadline Club. And I’m on TV occasionally at CBSN, CBS New York, Golf Channel, and BBC World News.

I’ve also written for: Sports Illustrated; Time; Vice; Salon; The Guardian; The Paris Review; NPR.org; Deadspin; The Wall Street Journal; Entrepreneur; 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. And I’ve had some short fiction published.

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

That’s everything, for now.
