Hi! I’m Michael Waters.
I’m a journalist who has written for The Atlantic, WIRED, Vox, and other publications. I have a constellation of personal obsessions ranging from queer history to the death-care industry to the quirks of local politics.
I’m currently a reporter at Digiday, covering mostly Amazon.
I previously worked for the newsletter The Hustle, and before that, I interned at Atlas Obscura, The Outline, The Washington Monthly, and Smithsonian Magazine.
