I am passionate about helping people to feel fulfilled and productive as they age, particularly during the second half of life. I blog about adulthood at my own blog, RealDelia, and I’m also a regular contributor to a variety of other websites, including Better After 50Sixty and Me and Thrive Global.

My writing and reporting has appeared in outlets including The New York TimesThe Washington Post, The BBC World Service and Chicago Public Radio. In previous professional incarnations, I produced a nationally syndicated radio talk show, taught political science at two prominent American universities and worked on international development policy in both London and Washington.

I am currently at work on a book about swimming and adulthood.
