I write about all aspects of art and the art world – from artists, museums, galleries, and the market to museum issues, art history, conservation, and art law. Writing about art  has allowed me to tackle virtually any subject I've wanted to, from politics and technology to military history and contemporary culture.  It is the perfect beat for anyone who wants to be a generalist in specialist's clothing.  

You can find my work in WSJ., TThe New York Times1stdibs and ArtDesk, among others.  I have also written for Slate, The Atlantic Monthly, Abu Dhabi's National, Art + Auction, Art in America and many more.
