By temperament, training, and experience, I’m a journalist. That means I believe in well-researched, fair-minded, and engaging writing and production about public affairs – no matter what the medium – text, audio, or video.

After an award-winning career in public radio and TV, I spent time in the unpaid economy raising a family and doing volunteer civic work that included writing, hosting public informational events, engaging with state legislators, and serving on non-profit boards.

I currently live in Singapore. Before that, I was a life-long resident of the Great Lakes region of the United States and proud of it.

My interests include politics, economics, philosophy, science, religion, and history.

Please read my blog Grinding the Lens, or visit my Facebook, Twitter, or Medium feeds. Please also look on my Publications & Pieces page for more of my work.

I also provide English-language coaching to help students improve their spoken and written English.
