Alfred Miller is a freelance journalist based in New York City. A recovering engineer, he writes about business and technology as well as media and politics.
Alfred grew up on Staten Island, New York, and attended Brooklyn’s Poly Prep Country Day School throughout middle school and high school. There, he developed a love for asking tough questions and sharing the answers he found with others as editor of the school paper. This, combined with his love for taking things apart, led him to pursue the path of engineer by day and journalist by night.
Alfred majored in Electrical Engineering at Princeton and spent much of his free time either interning at WABC radio’s John Batchelor Show or working for the news division of Princeton’s own student-run radio station, WPRB.
Upon graduation in 2011, he moved to Lexington, Kentucky, to work as an engineer for the printer maker Lexmark International. Alfred returned to New York in 2013 to attend Columbia Journalism School and to pursue his dream of asking questions for a living.
When he’s not pursuing a story or funding his journalism habit via tutoring, Alfred can usually be found rocking out to country music, hitting rails on the squash court, or cheering on his beloved Yankees.
