My work has appeared in The Atlantic, The Economist, The Daily, The Boston Review, Reason, Forbes, The Daily Beast, Bloomberg, Slate, Prospect, and a variety of other publication online and off. I’ve been a columnist for The Week, a regular writer for The Economist‘s Free Exchange economics blog, a regular on Bloggingheads TV, and a regular commentator for American Public Media’s radio program Marketplace. I also dabble in illustration. So far, my illustration work has appeared in Defunct and The Atlantic online.
A recovering Washingtonian, I was a research fellow at the Cato Institute for five years, and before that did stints at the Mercatus Center and the Institute for Humane Studies.
I live in Houston, Texas with my fiancée, Kerry Howley and our Vizsla, Winston.
