A writer and journalist whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Bloomberg Businessweek, BBC, National Geographic, Marketplace Radio, Playboy, Scientific American,  Outside Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, LA Weekly, New Scientist, Conde Nast Traveler, Fast Company, New York Magazine, and others.
Born to refugee parents, Popescu's father, Petru Popescu, fled Communist Romania in the 1970s, and his mother’s family left Nazi Europe, eventually settling in Israel, then California. Popescu is the first person in his family to be born in America, growing up in Los Angeles.
In 2013, Popescu traveled on assignment to Mount Everest, covering the impact of tourism on the land and local people for the BBC. That experience would become the catalyst for his first novel. An early draft of that work was a winning selection in the Penguin Random House Twitter Fiction Festival.
Popescu’s journalism has focused on vanishing cultures and wildlife, reporting from places threatened by climate change, globalism, and the march of technology. He’s tracked mountain lions living on the periphery of Los Angeles, spent time with scientists studying polar bears and with native peoples battling harsh weather and coastal erosion in the Arctic. Popescu has interviewed sitting heads of state in Mexico, men tasked with governing in a narco-state, as well as the Dalai Lama, and founders of startups such as Instagram and Tinder. He holds a master's degree in journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, and a BA in creative writing from Pitzer College.
