Magazines, Newspapers, Web

After a career as a writer and editor at BusinessWeek, Fortune, the Bergen Record, and Institutional Investor magazine, I now write regularly for: The New York Times, Newsday, The Scientist, and many other publications. In addition, I write reviews for The National of the United Arab Emirates and The New York Journal of Books.
