John Schwartz

I'm a reporter for The New York Times, and have covered everything from climate change to law to space shuttle launches. I also write a regular humor column about investing for the NYT business section, because I love a challenge. I was born in Texas, went to UT Austin (Hook 'em!). I've also worked at The Washington Post and Newsweek in a career that has taken me from Moscow to the Mojave desert, from the bootheel of Missouri to Nanjing, China. For stories, I have flown a jetpack, ridden a moon rover prototype, been zapped (safely) with a million volts of electricity and caught drones. I'm married to my college sweetheart, Jeanne Mixon, and we have three kids.
