Hello and welcome!

I’m an American author, editor and consultant based in Hong Kong, with deep knowledge of Asia’s three largest economies: China, India and Japan.

I've spent most of my career covering business and economics in the US and Asia as senior writer for The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and Fortune magazine. I also worked for many years at McKinsey & Company helping senior partners develop and share firm knowledge, insight and ideas. 

In 2017, I returned to Time Inc as Executive Editor for the company's international division. In the wake of Time Inc's acquisition by Meredith Corporation, I remain Executive Editor, International for Time Inc Brands, and have happily reclaimed my old job as Asia Editor for Fortune. In addition to contributing feature articles for both Fortune and Time, I write the special "Sino-Saturday" edition of Alan Murray's influential Fortune CEO Daily newsletter. I'm also deeply involved with Fortune conferences, including the Fortune Global Forum, Brainstorm Tech and two newly launched events, Fortune Brainstorm Tech International (held annually in Guangzhou, China) and Brainstorm Design (held annually in Singapore). 

My work has taken me to every major Asian economy. I have lived in Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong and speak Japanese and Mandarin. I write and speak frequently about the region.
