Hello there! I’m the managing editor of the Columbia Journalism Review. Previously, I have worked at The New Yorker, Harper’s, and The Atlantic, and I’ve written for these and other magazines. I am also on the adjunct faculty of the Columbia Journalism School. As a champion of narrative nonfiction, I’ve worked with greats and emerging talents whose pieces have been honored by the American Society of Magazine Editors, the Overseas Press Club, and the Livingston Awards for Young Journalists.
