Todd Oppenheimer, the founding Editor & Publisher of Craftsmanship, has been working as a journalist since 1978. The publications he has written for include The New Yorker, The New York Times, and The Atlantic Monthly. He has won a variety of awards for his writing and reporting, including a National Magazine Award and a first prize from Investigative Reporters & Editors (IRE). He is the author of “The Flickering Mind: Saving Education from the False Promise of Technology” (Random House, 2003, 2004), which was a finalist for IRE’s investigative book award. Todd has been writing about unusual artisans since 2008, when he profiled Bob Kramer, a master bladesmith, for The New Yorker. An expanded version of that story, entitled “The Kitchen Bladesmith,” is now in our pages. Todd lives in San Francisco with his wife and two boys, and is a long-time member of the now-fabled Writers Grotto.
