Journalism provides an entry into the infinite facets of human experience. I've explored education for The Washington Post, architecture for Curbed, music for Washingtonian, literary medicine for The Writer, and law for Medium (editor’s pick).
Sports, however, dominate my life and my freelance work. Stories range from Olympians in mid-Missouri to octogenarian age-groupers in LA to an All-American who quit running in DC. More highlights below.
USA Triathlon — creating community
ZouNation — learning to coach every year
Competitor — running the numbers
Competitor — dancing by day
ZouNation — leaving the NFL
USA Triathlon — working weekends and racing never
National Geographic Society -- failing to see
RunWashington -- living like Lincoln
Papercuts -- trekking for family pilgrimages
I love words, but a story dictates its form. Sometimes pictures (bottom). Or videos. Or maps. Or GIFs. I’ve also hosted live TV segments, produced a one-off podcast, edited an Oxford University doctoral dissertation, and co-wrote a chunk of the White House's 2015 Strategy for American Innovation.
