I care about the interplay between the rugged beauty of nature, the outputs of science and technology, and the creative expression of spiritual and artistic communities. These themes prompted me to research the lifestyles of 13th century Franciscan monks and the thought of Renaissance artists and writers for my current book project, Renaissance Reloaded: How Technology Made us Human.

Whether it’s engineering in the Renaissance or sci-fi and information networks today, much of my writing explores the promises and contradictions of technological innovation. 

Thanks for reading.
