I’m a staff writer at The Village Voice in New York City, where I focus on longform work, often with an investigative bent. My writing has appeared in that paper, as well as Slate, SalonL.A. Weekly, the San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego CityBeat, and the Hartford Advocate, among others. I’m certified in CPR and hold an M.S. degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. I also made a beer. Poke around this site for work samples — selected clips are on the home page, Voice stuff is here at my author page. Follow me on Twitter for news links and sundry whathaveyous, and use the contact form below to get in touch with tips and feedback.
