My name is Jacob Davidson. I'm a news editor at TIME.

I graduated from Columbia University in 2014 with a degree in Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies. Before my current role at TIME, I was a general assignment reporter with MONEY, specializing in economics and technology. Before that, I wrote for TIME Magazine and the world, business, entertainment, and newsfeed sections of Time.com as an editorial intern and contributor, served as online editor for the Columbia Daily Spectator, and started the Columbia Lion campus news blog.

I'm proficient in Arabic, OK at programming, and just a little obsessed with hockey. Sometimes (rarely) I write things on my blog.
