About Me

I am a freelance writer and a former staff reporter for the Wall Street Journal. 


Most recently, my stories about the global pandemic have appeared in the WSJ, The Los Angeles Times and Vogue. I have written personal essays and humor for both the WSJ and the New York Times covering subjects such as lost tortoises, downsizing and New York co-op boards.

I’m also a below average triathlete. I have written several personal essays for the WSJ on the advantage of being over 50 and competing in the world championships on Team USA.
