Professional Experience

I'm a freelance reporter, editor, proofreader and copy-editor, with an extensive background in economics and finance and a passion for good food. I've interviewed Nobel-winning economists about the financial crisis and profiled development economists at work in northern Uganda, and I've written about both one of the world's largest food festivals and a Buenos Aires-based supper club. As the editor of a widely-read economics blog, I gained extensive experience in both editing highly-technical writing on economics and finance and making those topics reader-friendly. My work has appeared in both The New York Times and The Atlantic online. I'm also available for corporate ghost-writing, with experience covering a variety of economics, business and investing topics.
