While I have chosen to focus on international, cross-cultural and interfaith issues, I have covered everything from tornadoes to taxidermy over the course of my career. At daily newspapers I wrote features and enterprise stories as well as covering breaking news and courts, cops, county supervisors, town councils and planning commissions. My work has appeared in national and international newspapers and magazines and on numerous websites and blogs. A selection of my favorite stories can be found on this page.
