I am the Executive Editor of piqd.com, and an award-winning long-form journalist based out of Spain who specializes in reporting on migration, international development, human rights issues and investigative reporting.
Originally from California. I've lived in China, Spain, Mexico and India, and reported from various countries in Africa, Europe and the Middle East. My primary beats relate to immigration, economics and international development. You can read my articles in Huffington Post Highline, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, Vogue India, Mint, Far Eastern Economic Review, Foreign Policy, Reason Magazine, and the Phoenix New Times. I'm also a regular contributor to Devex.
My Huffington Post Highline series, "The 21st Century Gold Rush" won awards from the National Association of Magazine Editors, Overseas Press Club, and American Society of Newspaper Editors. I've also won multiple awards for feature writing in India and the United States.
I'm a former Pulitzer Grantee, and have had fellowships at the Institute for Current World Affairs and the Wall Street Journal. Degrees include a BA from Hampshire College and MS from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where I was a Stabile Fellow at the Center for Investigative Journalism.
German media and technology journalist. Founding editor of piqd. Most of his piqs are digging into the new digital public sphere. How is the web changing public opinion? Who defines what's relevant and what's not? How can we make sure relevant information still finds an audience? How could alternatives to Facebook, Twitter and other commercial social networks look like?
