I’m Graham Starr, a journalist and website based in New York, currently senior tech editor at Business Insider, where I lead a reporting team investigating the world’s most powerful companies. (Got a tip? Send me an email using a nonwork device. Use PGP for extra security. Here is my PGP public key.)
I’ve written about business and technology for The New York Times, Wired, The Atlantic, New York Magazine, and Slate, and my projects and artworks have been featured in the Washington Post, Fortune, NPR, and HuffPost, among others. In 2017, I was part of a team at The Atlantic that won an ASME Award for work on an interactive timeline.
Before Business Insider, I was a senior staff editor at The New York Times, working mostly on breaking news, business news, and special reports. I was also a founding editor of “Happening Now,” an experiment in visual news that’s now part of The Times’ app and homepage. Before The Times, I was an editor at New York Magazine’s tech site, Select All. I previously worked for WIRED and The Atlantic.
I’ve also led workshops on media, art, and technology at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program and lectured for journalism and writing classes at NYU and CUNY. (Want me to speak to your class? Send me an email!)
