Senior Travel Tech Editor

I’m at so@skift.com. I’m a staff reporter at Skift, a trade news publisher for the travel industry that LinkedIn named “a top startup to work for” in the U.S. in 2018 and that Fast Company named “one of the world’s most innovative companies” in 2019 and. I cover travel technology.

Since 2010, I’ve covered travel tech full-time. I was editor-in-chief of Tnooz (now Phocuswire) and the travel tech columnist for BBC Travel. I’ve interviewed hundreds of top executives and entrepreneurs, including more than a dozen on-stage at live events. My trade scoops have been name-checked/referenced by The New York Times, Bloomberg News, and other major outlets. I’ve appeared on many major TV news channels, including 16 times on MSNBC, plus CNN, ABC World News This Morning, and NBC Nightly News.

In fall 2010, I left being senior online editor of Arthur Frommer’s Budget Travel magazine in New York City to move to London. More recently I moved to the Philadelphia suburbs.
