I’m a reporter and editor for American Banker in New York, on leave for the Knight Bagehot fellowship at Columbia University through April.

I previously worked staff gigs at Legal Times, The San Bernardino Sun and The Washington City Paper. I’ve freelanced for Slate, The Columbia Journalism Review, The Washington Post, and The Dallas Morning News, and did some work in East Africa for the Montreal Gazette.

Before beginning my reporting career, I supervised a home for schizophrenics, shelved cat food on the Piggly Wiggly’s graveyard shift, and unloaded salmon boats in Naknek, Alaska. I can be contacted at jeff.horwitz at gmail or (212) 803-8577.

I welcome contact from readers and sources, whether confidential or on-record.
