Nancy Scola is a Washington D.C.-based journalist whose work often involves telling the stories of new ideas and the people behind them. She's currently a senior technology reporter at Politico. Her freelance work has appeared in a range of publications, including Politico Magazine, Washingtonian, Reuters, The American Prospect, Seed, New York, Next City, and The Atlantic online -- where she served as the political tech correspondent during the 2012 U.S. presidential election. She has been a staff writer at The Washington Post and from 2008 to 2011 was the associate editor at techPresident, one of the very first publications to consider the impact technology is having on politics.
Before finding journalism, Nancy worked in the U.S. House of Representatives and, briefly, in presidential politics. New Jersey born and raised, she studied anthropology at both The George Washington University and Boston University and now lives in D.C.'s Capitol Hill neighborhood.
