Thanks for visiting.


I'm Senior Investigations Editor for the California Newsroom, an NPR-funded collaboration of public media outlets throughout the state. 


I'm also an independent reporter, writer, and editor with 28 years of experience in print and web, and significant experience in radio, podcast, and television journalism.


I'm a Sports Emmy-winner and two-time finalist for the National Magazine Award (2008, public interest category2012, reporting category). My writing has been anthologized in the collections Best American Magazine Writing and Best American Sports Writing, and has appeared in Outside, Wired, GQ, Men's Health, Los Angeles magazine, and many other publications large and small.  

For stories, I’ve interviewed gun violence and sex trafficking victims in San Bernardino and South L.A., traced the movements of a sexual predator on two continents, tracked cougars in the Santa Monica Mountains, trekked with llamas in the Sierra Nevada mountains, listened to music in near-silence with one of the greatest-ever record producers, trained with federal law enforcement agents, and cruised in a red Cadillac with a high-maintenance peacock named Radagast.

I live in Los Angeles. Maybe we can work together.
