I'm a Stanford-educated journalist, author, and editorial consultant specializing in the social sciences. My articles and essays have appeared in Discover, the New York Times Magazine, Scientific American and Scientific American Mind, O, The Oprah Magazine, Psychology Today, Slate, FastCompany, Stanford Magazine, the Washington Post, Wired, and more. I'm the author of one business book, THE MIDDLEMAN ECONOMY, and have completed collaborations on two others: SECRETS OF THE MONEYLAB and HOW GOOGLE WORKS. (I was the co-author on the former and the researcher on the latter.)
My editorial services include ghostwriting, developmental editing, Internet research, structuring book proposals, suggesting appropriate agents, and guiding authors through the entire process from idea to publication.
