I’m Phil Rosen.

I’m a Hong Kong-American writer and a senior reporter at Business Insider.

I’m the author of the #1 bestselling short story collection, Life Between Moments: New York Stories, as well as the #1 bestselling travel memoir, Everywhere But Home: Life Overseas as Told by a Travel Blogger, which details my time living in Southeast Asia.

I’m currently based in New York City, though after a Southern California upbringing, I’ve lived in Hong Kong, Germany, and Spain.

Besides filling the archives of this website, I’ve reported for InsiderFortune Magazine, BuzzFeed News, GreenBizUS-China TodayAnnenberg Media, the Thousand Oaks Acorn, and Flique Editorial, among other outlets, as well as several online fiction magazines.

I’m also the writer behind Tip Jar, a weekly personal growth column on work, happiness, and productivity. It lands in over 1,600 inboxes every Monday morning — sign up for free here.

Now, I’m offering readers my productivity e-book, “Five Ways to (Actually) Optimize Your Life and Win.” It’s a concise, mighty manual of the best tactics I’ve learned from reading hundreds of self-help books. Get your copy today.
