Hi again. The best way to see what I'm about is to click around this site and read whatever strikes your fancy — or email me! — but here are a few notes about where I've worked, what I'm interested in, and who has decided I'm promising enough to fund.
My work has been published in High Country News, the Washington Post, the LA Review of Books Blarb, Nieman Storyboard, and more. I've worked in newsrooms at the Montana Standard in Butte and Montana Public Radio. You'll find work from all these on this website.
I've been primarily a writer, but in the last couple of years I've also leaned enthusiastically into photography, data, and multimedia storytelling. I will be delighted anytime to dig into what the heck "multimedia" even means, and how we can use it more effectively.
In 2018, I also started to play roller derby, which is perhaps the most fun sport ever invented. My greatest derby disappointment so far is that I can only use one of my long list of excellent name ideas — so if you're looking for a funny and slightly violent alter ego, please be in touch, as I have extras.
