I write about travel, culture, business, and road safety for The New York Times and Forbes, covering everything from historic commemorations of the fall of the Berlin Wall and women's contributions to landscape architecture to growing concerns about the number one killer of healthy Americans abroad -- motor vehicle crashes.


Tanya Mohn

I am a regular contributor to The New York Times and Forbes, writing breaking news and feature stories on business, travel, and road safety.

At The Times, my byline has appeared on hundreds of articles, some featured on the homepage and on the frontpage of The International New York Times (previously the International Herald Tribune). In both publications, a number of stories were among the day’s most emailed.

My work has appeared in many Times sections: Business, Sunday Review, Job Market, Workplace, Metro, Education Life, Travel, Automobiles, Giving, Continuing Education, Retirement, Museums, Fine Arts & Exhibitions, as well as on the reported blogs Wheels and In Transit. Story topics have included business travel, job trends, small business, personal spending, social issues, road safety, travel, and the arts, and I was the lead contributor to the weekly calendar in the travel section of The Times for nearly one year.

For Forbes, I write and produce a reported blog that focuses on transportation,road safety and consumer travel issues. I've also written for NBC News, Today.com, BBC, Yahoo, MSN, AOL’s DailyFinance, and the magazines Afar and Scientific American Explorations.

Prior to my print career, I worked as a segment producer and writer in television news and documentary film for PBS, HBO, CNBC, and several independent film companies, and as a full-time member of the production staff at the ABC News magazine 20/20 for seven years.

Specialties: business and leisure travel, road safety, culture and the arts, and anything that can be considered human interest.
