Welcome

Thank you for coming to my site. I’m a writer, journalist, and media producer.

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.

For the last several years, I have been a member of the unpaid economy – that is, I’ve been a stay-at-home dad, raising two boys.

Prior to that I worked in public radio and TV as a reporter, news director, and as an on-air radio and TV host for local and statewide programs. I’ve won numerous awards for my journalism.

I also volunteered in several non-partisan civic groups while living in central Illinois, including as a board member of League of Women Voters of Greater Peoria, as a leader with Illinois People’s Action, and as the founder and co-host of the Peoria chapter of Drinking Liberally, a social group for liberals and progressives. I’ve also started a new chapter of Drinking Liberally in Singapore.

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