I'm a writer and editor living in Los Angeles. My first book, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work, was published by Knopf in 2013 and has been translated into 15 languages. A sequel, Daily Rituals: Women at Work, came out in March 2019.

Previously, I worked as the managing editor of Metropolis, the executive editor of Print, and a senior editor at Core77. In 2007, I started the Daily Routines blog, which eventually led to the Daily Rituals books.

My freelance writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Slate. Iā€™m currently researching ideas for a new book.
