Magazines, Newspapers, Web

After a career as a writer and editor at BusinessWeek, Fortune, the Bergen Record, Institutional Investor magazine, and Crain’s New York Business newspaper, I now write regularly for: The New York Times, Newsday, The Scientist, scientificamerican.com (the Website of Scientific American), portfolio.com, and more. As a senior contributing writer at Institutional Investor, I post a weekly blog on retirement issues for its Website.  In addition, I write reviews for The National of the United Arab Emirates and The New York Journal of Books.

I have also posted on The Huffington Post
