About me: I currently work as the editorial director at Outside magazine in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Over the years I’ve worked as an editor or writer with various publications, including Wired, The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post Magazine, Spy, Slate, and The New Republic, among others. I’m the author of one previous book: Apocalypse Pretty Soon, a nonfiction look at millennial and utopian subcultures published by W.W. Norton in 1999.
I was born in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1957, and went to school there through the first half of 9th grade. My dad, who was a pathologist, took a new job in Garden City, Kansas, in 1972, so I went to high school there. After two years of college at Fort Hays State University, I transferred to Vanderbilt University in 1978, graduating in 1980.
