As a current magazine writer and contributing editor (and a former editor-in-chief), I needed a landing page to organize my features—more for the memories than anything else, but also to share books written by those I’ve interviewed.
Magazine Writing and Award-Winning Journalism
I’ve been writing and reporting for so long that I can’t possibly list them all, but have included a hundred or so interviews loosely categorized below. Note that if they fit into several categories, I may list articles more than once.
You can find my award-winning journalism here.
I’ll keep adding to my website monthly, but in the meantime here’s a look at a small portion of my work—just a sampling of subjects who work, live, play, and give back to the community.
