In more than two decades as a journalist, I’ve written about how to hit the cutoff man and water desalination systems, and just about everything in between.
I’m a contributing editor for Men’s Health where I report on relationships, money, travel, work, health, stress, parenting and food. Sometimes all at once. I specialize in service journalism with a twist, as in the best places for everything, jumpstart any situation, succeed like Michael Dell, handle pressure like a NBA Finals MVP, how to write a detective novel, and whether flu shots and honest feedback ever really work. I also tend to make lists, such as:
- Inventions that need to exist
- Three words to live by
- Goals that can be scrapped
- Stuff that happens only in the movies
- Lessons from spring training
- 18 things a grown man should never have
- How to get a second date by not being an idiot on the first
I write a lot of stuff for Fatherly, like how awful dads transform into good grandfathers, dealing with miserable relatives, and changing your mind mid-sentence with your child. I do the same for Harvard Health on topics like breaking up with your doctor, handling an ER visit with a child, and reclaiming the neck your kids have ruined.
My work has appeared in The Boston Globe Magazine, EXOS, Women’s Health, Baby Center, Delta Air Lines’ Sky magazine, Redbook, Tablet Magazine. I was the columnist for the Boston Parents’ Paper, and I’m a writer for MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program, profiling research and start-ups companies, and hitting topics such as aerospace design, liquid metal batteries, and, yes, water desalination systems.
