Leandro Faria is a night owl who spends an obscene amount of time listening to science podcasts during his commute, then writing about them at night after his wife and son go to sleep. Years ago, before he became nocturnal, he wrote a bestselling sports-betting book. He is an economist who holds degrees from Emory University and Vanderbilt University, and now works as a financial forecaster.
Though he was born in Campinas, Brazil, he’s adopted Atlanta as his second home. When he’s not writing, you can find him watching trashy television, reading about astrophysics, or suffering due to Atlanta’s sports teams.
