My writings on business, culture, and technology have been published in, Bloomberg Businessweek, Outside, The Atlantic, Harper’s, and The New Republic. I started my career in business and financial reporting at The Cincinnati Business Courier, where I covered manufacturing, economic development, and advertising. I’ve also worked as an advertising columnist and retail reporter for The Cleveland Plain Dealer, and a national correspondent for Advertising Age.
