I'm a 34-year-old journalist in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I write about science, sports, and culture for Wired magazine, where I'm a contributing editor, and Philadelphia magazine, where I'm a writer at large. My work has also appeared in GQ, Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, Slate, Kill Screen, The Penn Stater, Wharton Magazine, Etiqueta Negra, and Deadspin. I have a piece in the 2011 edition of The Best American Sports Writing, an anthology edited by Jane Leavy and Glenn Stout.
In 2006, I spent a year reporting on eating contests and wrote a book called Horsemen of the Esophagus. I'm now working on my second book, about futuristic cars and the people who make them, for Crown/Random House. It's called Ingenious, and it will be published in March 2013.
