There's a lot in the world to explore...



I started working in newspapers as a layout editor before becoming the Editor in Chief of a weekly. There’s nothing quite like putting together an entire newspaper over and over to teach you respect for details.


Public Radio taught me a new respect for the power of sound and how to make the most of every minute.

Public Television

Public television is elegant balancing act between information and expression. The public television station I worked for taught me about finding the special spot of catching an audience’s attention and delivering value.

Online Media

No matter what I've worked on in news, I’ve always had a hand in the digital presence of the organization.

I'm a pretty frequent reader across a lot of genres in nonfiction and fiction. I'm planning on adding a section of book notes to this site soon.


My favorite place is behind my camera.


Creative experimentation and expression is really important to me. I am frequently trying new art forms and enjoy making things—regardless of how bad I might be at that particular format ;)
