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 (now defunct) 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.
