Hi, I'm Alex Kantrowitz. I'm a staff reporter at Ad Age covering marketing and advertising technology.
Prior to joining Ad Age, I wrote for Forbes, Fortune, BuzzFeed and PBS MediaShift. My work has been highlighted by Harvard's Nieman Journalism Lab, Poynter, MediaGazer, TechMeme and JimRomenesko.com,
My longest stint pre-Ad Age was at Forbes, where I spent 20 months writing for the publication's tech section. During that time, I looked at the digital side of the 2012 election, the Vatican's social media strategy and the shutdown of Google Reader. I also played for the Forbes softball team, the Capitalist Tools. You can find my archive here here: forbes.com/alexkantrowitz
Before becoming a journalist, I worked for New York City's Economic Development Corporation and Operative Media. I also managed the first New York State Assembly campaign of a retired credit union manager from Queens. That man is now in his third term.
I graduated from Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations.
