I’m a policy journalist who writes about philanthropy, international development, economic policy, and other mattrs. Currently I’m a senior correspondent and head writer for Future Perfect at Vox. Many years ago, I was a staff reporter for Wonkblog at The Washington Post. I also wrote for The New Republic, Salon, The American Prospect and Slate a long long time ago. Above is a photo of me taken eight years ago, when I was less ravaged by age.
This site exists mostly as a way to preserve a handful of old blog posts that I’m not totally mortified by in the present day.
