About

Daniel Weiss

I am currently a senior editor at Archaeology magazine. In previous jobs and freelance assignments, I have written about a range of topics in science, health, medicine, and politics. I also like to write profiles and have done the odd radio story in the past.

After graduating from Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism in 2007, I was part of a small New York City–based team that launched the Discovery Channel Magazine and then stayed on as a staff writer after daily operations moved to Singapore. I have also been managing editor of Campaigns & Elections, a magazine that covers the business and art of politics.
