About

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.

For stories relating to Digiday: mwaters@digiday.com

For freelance/personal/everything else: themichaelw@gmail.com
