About Me

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

These days I help oversee investigations as a senior editor at Bloomberg News. Before this I spent 11 years at The New York Times as an editor and reporter 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 I’m about to complete my formal training in intermediate Python and Pandas for data reporting.

Here is my résumé. Work samples are below.
