Bio/Mission

I am the deputy editor of THE FUTURIST magazine and content director for www.wfs.org. I write on information technology, AI and AGI, cybernetics, nanotechnology, genetics and genetic ethics, invention, climate change and climate change mitigation, demography, literacy, public policy and neuroscience and have done so behalf of various publications and sites, including THE FUTURIST magazine, The Wilson Quarterly, The Johns Hopkins Magazine, Encyclopedia Britannica online, and the Discovery Channel and yadda yadda blah blah blah. As a science journalist and editor, I've had the good fortune to interview such technologists, policy experts, and visionaries as MIT roboticist Rodney Brooks, Google research director Peter Norvig, military strategist Edward N. Luttwak, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, former CIA director Robert James Woolsey, tech guru Tim O'Reilly, environmentalist Lester Brown, flying-car-creator Paul Moller, historian Lewis Lapham, activist Azar Nafisi, and inventor Ray Kurzweil on various topics related to the future. I am the 2006 winner of the Barry Hannah Prize in short fiction, was a finalist for the 2004 One Story short story competition, and was the winner of the 2006 Eugene Walter Award for the Novel. I hold a master’s degree in writing from Johns Hopkins and my short stories have appeared in such literary journals as The Yalobusha Review, Main Street Rag, and Touchstone.

Inspirations

I'm a futurist. You're a futurist, too.
