Editor in Chief, New York Magazine
New York Magazine, May 5, 2014
“Peter Bach writes an extraordinary essay about being a cancer doctor whose wife has terminal cancer. With the diagnosis came the realization that at each step of the way, he would be privy to knowledge his wife didn’t have yet. A memorial of a marriage, an exploration of the doctor-patient relationship (the toll it takes to balance hope and truth) and a memoir of grief, all in one.”
Let’s, Like, Demolish Laundry.
New York Magazine, May 19, 2014
“In a year when the tech boom reached comic heights, Jessica Pressler captured the fizzy moment in a tour de force of magazine feature writing. This is the tale of a plucky gang of millennial men attempting to create “the Uber of Laundry” only to realize they aren’t the first to arrive at the idea.”
New York Magazine, September 8, 2014
“In her masterful profile, Lisa Miller introduces the world to one of its most extraordinary citizens: a serial entrepreneur, futurist philosopher, pig-organ-for-transplant farmer, transhumanist visionary, pioneer of GPS and satellite radio, attorney with expertise in the laws of outer space, and devoted father who became a devoted mother in her 40s but remained married to the same woman.”
VP / Editor, Outside Magazine
Outside Magazine, September 2014
“Why did 16 Sherpas die on Everest this year? In this fascinating exposé, Grayson Schaffer explores the dangerous intricacies of guiding on the world’s toughest mountain—and the strange economics that ensure Sherpas take on the deadliest risks.”

“This was one of our most popular—and divisive—stories of the year. A growing movement of parents believes public school is choking the creativity out of our kids. The solution: set ’em free, like writer Ben Hewitt did.”
Outside Magazine, December 2014
“Writer Rachel Sturtz, a former Big Ten track champion, spent a year investigating the longstanding pattern of male swim coaches preying on young women—and the governing body that has historically looked the other way. It’s a fascinating read on a horrifying culture of abuse and denial.”
Editor in Chief, Vegetarian Times
Vegetarian Times, June 2014
“For this year’s “Chefs We Love” issue, we profiled recipes from notable vegetarian chefs around the world. My favorite story is “British Invasion,” because writer Mary Margaret Chappell and photographer Beatriz da Costa actually did invade the UK for about a week, personally meeting the people, tasting the food, and collecting great recipes and stories from England’s up-and-coming veg dining destinations. The whole thing made me proud and appreciative that we have such a far-flung (and talented) creative team.”
Us Weekly, September 22, 2014
The fearless entertainer broke down barriers and kept fans in stitches until her sudden death.
Men’s Journal, October 2014
Every time you walk into a physician’s office, you run the risk of overtreatment: Tests you don’t need, medications that are ineffective (or dangerous), procedures that cause more problems than they solve. In many cases the best thing for your health is to do nothing.
