Hello, I’m Freddie deBoer, a writer and academic. I write a newsletter on culture and politics. I encourage you to click over there and check it out. I am the author of 2020’s The Cult of Smart, a book about meritocracy, education, and the potential for a more humane society. You can learn more about the book by clicking its image in the sidebar to the right. I’m also a prolific freelancer who has written for many of the biggest publications in the world. You can see a selection of my work by clicking “Published Work” in the upper righthand corner. Additionally, I am an experienced ghostwriter and have done content development for textbook companies in the past, and I’m available for the right projects. Please feel free to email me at the address in the sidebar for rates. You can follow my book reviews at Goodreads, find my professional resume at LinkedIn, and access a feed of my newsletter posts on Twitter.

I live in Brooklyn with my girlfriend and my cat Suavecito.
