I write long-form stories on inventors, design, and energy innovations for Bloomberg Businessweek, Wired, Popular Science, and Runner's World. I'm a correspondent for Wired magazine and the president of the Brattleboro Literary Festival, a classic Vermont event that attracts top authors and thousands of visitors.
Home is Brattleboro, Vermont, where I share an old farmhouse with my wife, son, and daughter. Historically, the property once consisted of a large chicken coop among farm outbuildings during the late 19th Century. Various second-home owners improved and added on over the years to make it more attractive. In the time we've owned it, we've employed all our DIY skills in carpentry and renovation such that it is once again beginning to look like a chicken coop.
