Thanks for visiting. I’m 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 currently on contract as the investigations editor for The California Newsroom, a collaboration of public media outlets throughout the state, with NPR as its national partner. 


I'm a Sports Emmy-winner and two-time finalist for the National Magazine Award (2008, 2012). My writing has been anthologized in The Best American Magazine Writing and the Best American Sports Writing, and has appeared in Outside, Wired, GQ, Men's Health, Los Angeles magazine, and many other publications large and small. You can use the menu to see selected work. 

I’ve written about crime and criminal justice, sexual abuse in sports, gun violence, health and fitness, cancer-stricken nuclear-weapons workers, immigration and the border, urban wildlife, drug policy, travel, adventure sports, yoga, illegal cannabis farming, and a range of people who do, or have done, interesting things.

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.
