In 25 years as a magazine editor, I worked on a wide range of subject matter, including health (“The Case of the Notorious Depression Drug”), finance (“The Best Investment Advice You’ll Never Get”), crime (“DNA’s Identity Crisis”), culture and technology (“Is Tech Hurting San Francisco?”), and lifestyle (“Love in the Time of Rent Inflation”).
