Marcus has been a tech, business, and science journalist for more than 20 years. He’s ridden in Ubers with Travis Kalanick, explored the hidden corners of Amazon warehouses, and worked the California cannabis beat. He went to Harvard. He studied with Michael Pollan. He’s even written a book about biopunk (think cyberpunk but slimier). Most recently he served as senior editor at WIRED, where he spearheaded the magazine’s Silicon Valley coverage. He lives with his wife and son in Berkeley, and we’re not really sure why he keeps showing up to work here. Maybe it’s the snacks.
