Jeff Chen is a writer who also makes crossword puzzles for the New York Times and other major publications.


In previous careers, he was a mechanical engineer listed on eight US patents, and then co-founded a pharmaceutical company, Acucela Inc, which went public in 2014.


He’s an avid rock climber, inconceivably terrible bridge player, and likes ideas, people, and things with nerd cred. He’s about two-thirds of the way toward his lifetime goal of donating 20 gallons of blood (not all at once).

Jeff lives in Seattle with his wife and two children.
