Senior Editor, Bloomberg News

About Me

I am a journalist whose career has spanned Silicon Valley, Washington and Wall Street.

These days I help run Top News on the Bloomberg Terminal and the home page on Bloomberg’s digital platforms. I spent the previous five years editing investigative projects and legal news.

I was also an editor and reporter at The New York Times for more than a decade, covering Wall Street and Washington.

I covered information technology in the early days of the Internet explosion and taught business reporting at George Washington University. I’m a graduate of Stony Brook University, where I advise my college newspaper on financial matters.

I recently earned my master’s degree from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University and completed my formal training in intermediate Python and Pandas for data reporting.

Here is my résumé. Work samples are below.

After Loss of Tax Break, Should the Pelhams Merge?
A detailed analysis of the Pelham and Pelham Manor tax bills and interviews with local officials suggest that consolidating services could cut costs and help offset the new federal cap on property-tax deductions. But the savings would probably be modest. UPDATE: This investigation has been cited frequently by voters and candidates in recent local election campaigns, particularly now, in the run-up to the Pelham Manor mayoral election on March 16, 2021.
