Biography

Matt Richtel is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times, speaker and author. He writes about technology, its impact on society, and how it changes the way we work, play, and relate to each other. A lauded speaker, he talks in accessible, entertaining terms about how heavy technology use impacts the brain, and why our gadgets have become so seductive as to be nearly addictive.

He offers practical ways for employees, parents and children to make the best use of technology without succumbing to allowing it to become counter-productive. These subjects were covered in his heralded 2014 non-fiction thriller, A Deadly Wandering (Harper Collins), which is the story of a deadly, mysterious car crash paired with the study of the science of attention to answer the question: what is technology doing to our brains. It was tabbed in September as a best book of the month by the Christian Science Monitor, then nation’s association of independent bookstores and by Amazon, which called it “a masterful work of narrative non-fiction.” For the New York Times, his 2010 series, "Our Brain On Computers" focused on how constant use of our devices impacts not only our behavior but our thought processes and even our neurology. His 2009 series about the dangers of multitasking while driving won the Pulitzer for national reporting. He is the author of three mysteries: The Cloud, Devil’s Plaything, and Hooked, a national best seller. His first children’s book, A Runaway Booger, is due out in 2015.

Mr. Richtel is based in San Francisco for The New York Times, which he joined in 2000, writing on a range of topics--Internet gambling, identity theft, corporate espionage, video games, mobile communications, the dot com boom and bust, and the pornography industry. He was a Loeb award finalist for his work on the Hewlett-Packard spying scandal and the winner of best project from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers for his work on distracted driving.

Matt Richtel lives in San Francisco with his wife and their two children. He is an avid tennis player, a recreational athlete, a prideful maker of guacamole for parties, and a periodic (and not good) songwriter. He grew up in Boulder, Colorado, the son of two avid readers, attended Boulder High School, and obtained a bachelors degree in rhetoric from University of California at Berkeley and an MS in Journalism from Columbia University.
