I am a New York based pension economist and award-winning journalist. I write  a regular column for Quartz and have written for the Economist, Businessweek, Wired, National Review, Playboy and Reuters.

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh and have a PhD in economics from Columbia University where I specialized in macroeconomics and public finance. I create solutions to make individual pension accounts work for the average investor. Here is some of my writing.


I am an economist, writer, amateur bread baker, columnist for Quartz, and a long-time pension geek.
